A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Posts tagged ‘hope’

Filling time

Busy boards … aprons … trinkets … gadgets
Fill a void …  urge to do … something
So much time … not to do … nothing
How to help … confused minds overcome boredom
How to incorporate … meaningful activities
How to enable … drifting souls … to smile
How to find … enjoyment … meaningful moments
How to  hinder … Alzheimer’s urges … sit and snooze
How to stimulate  … engage the wagon train
Circle the field … ward off Lady Blue
Feel … purposeful … excitement of doing
Satisfaction guaranteed … or not … trouble shoot
Find a way to save a day … pleasure for a moment
Pick up hope and drag it along … singing a song!

Maintaining dignity

Anchoring hope … ties that bind
Clearing paths … tangles unwind
Difficult … keeping distance ‘n care
Intoxicating … abyss … beware
Tormented … sanity … hides away
Light-headed … no reason to stay
Persistent … hope … pushes on
Determined to cope … into the dawn
Joy in the moment … loving embrace
Being needed … encourages haste
No place on earth … better to be
Maintaining … grace ‘n dignity.

Sharing Your Heart

Even a broken tree …bears fruit …words shared with love

A father … heart-broken …his son …with God above

Reminisced …kindness …fruit …his son …bestowed

Warmed his heart to know … his son …gave …hope …rainbows

I link this to you …Mother …you’re hurt … broken too

But …yet …you share …your smile …your heart

The unsuspecting …you.
