A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Looking for home

Looking for home … persevere
Hard finding  it … anywhere
Baffling …  if you’re looking
Everywhere … but elsewhere
In mind’s eye … it’s when
Someone loves you … dearly
Some miss the boat … clearly
Stumbling thru life …  wearily
Home is where one roams free
A place …  no eyes can see
Special feelings from the heart
Where forever memories start.

Smiles of Angels

My heart’s full, yet grieving today
Another friend … passed away
A short friendship … it’s true
None the less, friends true blue
Amidst life … to and fro
Some smile… kindness bestowed
Like the winds … top hills of snow
Replenishes … fields … below
So  I say …  with loving heart
Turn  frowns  … upside down
Always give your smile away
You never know …come what may
God sends Angels/ friends our way.

Loving Georgia

You saw my face …  today
No memories came your way
But I know your heart knows me
Just like I know … air is free
There’s nowhere I’d rather be
Than with you … most definitely
Regardless … the reality.

Room For Me /caring is sharing/ Happy Birthday Jesus/ Mom’s rejoicing in heaven, not confused any more! PTL!

Today you wonder … who I am
Tsunami’s strong … SLAM
Surges … knock me …down
Wearing … gloomy … frowns
Jump up … solid … on two feet
Head to toe … Blue … I greet
Reality  battles … futile … war
Confusion reigns  … forevermore
The mind … battleground … I see
The heart always room for me.

My head reminds

I remember … yesterday
Wanting to … go away
Dad … said … you can’t
Mom … said … let her go
Always … had my back
Always … saw my heart
Always … knew my way
From … the very start
Gave me … latitude
Gave me … peace of mind
Courage … honor … love
Compassion … for mankind
Her … empathy was striking
Cared for other … souls
Taught me … to be kind
My heart … my head reminds
My memories … rewind
To miss her can’t be wrong
Her time on earth … gone
Mentor … friend … my Momma
I won’t … let her go!

A week later

You’ve been gone to heaven a week
I get so emotional … hard to speak
My head gets dizzy … missing you
My heart knows … you’re not blue
No more Alzheimer’s … no sad days
No more wanting to … run away
Only peace … tranquility
In my mind’s eye … I see
You’re strolling heaven … happily
Seeing Jesus … face to face
In His loving arms … embrace
Visiting friends/family and more
So much peace and love … in store
I’ll be o.k. … this time and place
Knowing someday … by God’s grace
His promise … I’ll see Him
(And you too) … face to face.

No matter what

Angel dust … falls from high
Soothing tired … misty eyes
Wonders great … wonders … small
Wondering how I cope … at all
Some days … my heart’s … heavy
Missing you … Alzheimer’s stew
Other days … light as a feather
God’s grace … firm tether
Some days … need … refreshing
Other days … can’t … unglue
Some days … miss other … Mother
Other days … take a hike … you
Some days … weary … b.l.o.w.
Other days … extra miles … g.o.
Some days … need a break
Other days … hurry I’m late
No matter what … the clue
I’m blessed … because of you.

Resilience

Some days …I leave … sad ‘n blue
Crocodile tears … missing you
Need resilience … by your side
Strength wanes … emotions collide
My heart’s … stressed … sanity beware
Alzheimer’s stifles … your life declares

Then … watching … Lady-blue
My heart strengthens … fired … anew
In spite of chaos … confusion … strife
Alzheimer’s … can’t … abate
Your … love … of … life!

Even a moment

I see you every day … hi Sis … by the way
So glad I’m on your page … in your head
You recognize me … but … sometimes not
I’m someone nice … help bathe … feed you
I’m not a daughter … then … doesn’t last
A few moments … flabbergast … Sis, that you?
Calls out … Lady-blue … so glad you’re here
Muddled ‘n confused … misunderstood
I listen to your woes … anyone … would
Telephone calls … from miles … away
Loved ones … want to cheer you … up
Hear your voice … give hearts bouquets
But … then … suspicious … Lady-blue
Doesn’t know … what I do .. of you
Those loved ones … miles … away
Give you thought … make you ponder
Memories past … your heart wanders
Their love of you … your need to hear
Even a moment … draws … you … near!

Singing the blues

Suspicious Lady Blue … wants to run away
Anxious … confused … nothing new today
She’s restless … trying … to remember
Past memories … lost … fading embers
Holding on … bits ‘n pieces … wrinkles
Whispers of time … bursting … twinkles
Frowning eyebrows … tell … the sad news
Lady Blue’s heart … is singing the blues.
