A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Frequent flyer

Same ole question … lucid days
What am I doing here? anyway!
No idea! … a fib-let … or two
Doesn’t satisfy … Lady-blue
A frequent flyer … stirs the pot
Suspicious nature … sees a plot
Squinting eyes … tousled hair
Jumbled words … tossed in air
Wait! Short term memory came to play
Confuses Blue … SAVES THE DAY!

Magic ingredients

Enjoying … a walk … to the garden
You’re pondering … (what’s new)
Where are my kids … you bray
Here I am … (I play)
Frantic … you turn around
To your room … mission bound
Baby dolls … waiting (it’s true)
Can’t move … (what else can they do!)
You cradle them … love’s song
They make you smile … not wrong
Calmness … serenity … blending of two
Magic ingredients … subdues … Lady-blue.

Revolving door

Deja’vu  … ” revolving door”
Witnessed  … many times before
You’re … here … suddenly
Swish … gone … unexpectedly
Lucid Lucy  … passes through
Ultimately … emerges … Lady Blue
Whispers of time … breezes blow
You’re here … yet not … incognito.

Tight hold

Holding … fast … what makes sense
I get it … living … this side of the fence
Few moments … you’re not sad or blue
Wanting to leave … seek out … you
Long ago places … people … you knew
Whispers of time … flee Alzheimer’s stew
Observing … Lucid Lucy … today
Hurry Mother … let’s run and play
But then … we get … to the … fence
You struggle … confused … no sense
I’m yelling … come Mother … away
But … atlas … you can’t … you stay
Grasp of Lady-blue … like no other
Has a tight hold … my sweet Mother!

Bits ‘n pieces

Thrown into Alzheimer’s … snare
Bits ‘n pieces … here ‘n there
Mind over matter … stumbles away
Peace of mind … on holiday
Frustration … ready to play
Life’s games … Alzheimer’s way
Lucid Lucy … steps from the light
Lady Blue … shining … tonight.

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!

Positive reaction

Pondering … shows
Frowning … head to toes
Sceneries … in your head
Agitation … my dread
Reorientation … won’t do
Confusion … Lady-blue
Validation … the way
Positive reaction … today!

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!

Sweet memories

I’m comforted by your tenderness
Your baby dolls … fill a void
Pushing negative thoughts away
No sadness no tears … overjoyed
I’m pleased … by your smiles
No scowls … no frowning today
Lady Blue’s … on break
A much needed … holiday
I’m encouraged by your kindness
A reflection … years gone by
You’re enjoying … positive strokes
Sweet memories of Momma … I sigh.

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.
