A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Circumstance

Wandering hallways … pause ‘n look
Tomorrow … yesterday’s nook
Precious treasures … seek ‘n peek
From yesterday … previewed … sneak
Trinkets … fondled … in the hand
Strings of beads … fun … unplanned
Hesitation … a moment’s glance
Yesterday’s tomorrow … circumstance.

Hope’s Eternal

Chirping birdie … in the tree
Do you see … what … I see?
Wandering … souls … miles long
Searching … seeking … heart’s song
Some are positive … some … not
Some argumentative … on the spot
Some need company … along the way
Some are solo … no more … to say
Some hallucinate … sad atmosphere
Some delusional … final … frontier
Daily … stress …becomes  too … much
Need  … quiet milieu … caregiver’s touch
Alzheimer’s winning … mind’s in decay
But …  hope’s eternal … love saves the day!

Sufferin’ Succotash

Redirecting … your thoughts
Usually helps … go for a walk
Saunter … meander ’n squawk
Many delusions … soar thru
Hallucinations … début
Worry ‘n fret … at bay
Sufferin succotash … sadness away
Relax … five minutes … you see
In Texas … a change … guarantee!

Zapped

Haunting dreams … hopes in arrears
Waves of whispers … taunt living souls
Sleepless nights … demand attention
Casting minds … astray … detention
Delusional thoughts … hallucinations
Priceless moments … zapped forever
Expect … unexpected … encore.

Kindness Beguiles

A new face …in the crowd …Alzheimer’s further along
Combative …shows …frustration …with the day
Kind words …chase lonely blues …away
Delusions … false perceptions …dominant …awhile
Offering sustenance …brings …a smile
Kindness …helps …beguile!

Stolen Times

Chatting with others
They need …to blare
You hear half a story
Delusions …beware
You smile …they too
Same boat …as you
Sharing …thoughts
Mostly …askew
Time’s … stolen
No memories ensue .

State Of Confusion

Twisted …stories
Delusions …stalked
Wreaking … havoc
Forever’s …walk.

Just Purple

Alzheimer’s purple …take me away … a land …no confusion
No souls … sulking  around …looking for nothing …wearing a frown
No delusions …running the day …no disturbance …havoc …dismay
No one lost …who can’t be found …no tangles ‘n webs … to confound
JUST:
Purple toes … purple hair …purple bags …purple wear
Purple pens …purple ribbons …goodness maybe purple gibbons!
Eradication … someday …NO MORE ALZHEIMER’S
L.A.D.Y.B.L.U.E… …A.W.A.Y!

Chasing The Blues Away

Helpless … the  word today
You CHANGE  …so quickly
No …hip hooray
Tossing   Alzheimer’s
To Timbuktu …want to!
Maybe   …walk the dogs
Yeah! With others who
Share … the  cause
Yeah! That’s what I’m
Going to do …for YOU!
Actually … for me too
I hate what it’s doing to you
Something I’d rather see
NO MORE CONFUSION
ON OUR FAMILY TREE
So …I’ll put my heartache
To work …walk for sure
So RESEARCH CAN
FIND A CURE
September 14th …the day
We’re chasing THE BLUES
AWAY!

Bitter Road

Obsessing thoughts
Through  the day
Lady Blue keeps
Lucid Lucy  away
Delusions pave
The road
To the abyss
Bitter and cold.
