A journey in time with Alzheimer's

F.a.d.i.n.g. Faces

Faces … fading … from sight
Holding on … with all your might
Is that how I am … too
Am I far away …from you
Am I blurring fading fast
How long will my face last
Do you wonder … who I am
Can you see … me … am I
F.A.D.I.N.G. … from you?

Wall Of Faces

Voices … trip your memory
You’ve misplaced …a   face
To the wall  …of pictures
A memory … to replace
Sometimes  …they … last
Sometimes …  fade away
Your … wall of pictures
Help … memories …  stay.

Mother’s wall of pictures  has been helpful when she draws blanks remembering people and faces.  Usually she sees the picture and knows who she’s talked to on the phone.     We are all fading to some degree from her memory.  If I say  the full name (first, middle, last) of her kids, she smiles, but I’m afraid Alzheimer’s is swallowing us up!
