A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Futility

 

Suspicion threw her weight … today
Angry ‘n mad … doesn’t want to stay
Wants to go home … where she belongs
Keeping her here … just plain wrong
No way to reason … feels … betrayed
Pondering … way out … and … away
Alzheimer’s veil … lasts for hours
Emotionally pounded … enough said
Locked in her mind … my dread
Nothing works … distracting attention
Every word … brings … apprehension
Finally … kissed her head … adieu
Sorry Mom … I really … miss you
Can’t do this … today … futility
Slowly I leave … e.v.e.n.t.u.a.l.l.y.
