A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Yo-Yo

Wind the string … let it flow
Fun to watch … come and go
Fun to learn … walk the dog
Slithers along … sings its song
Reminds me … how it goes
Alzheimer’s moods … steal the show
When … uncertain … what to do
Walk away … but … not from you
Turn around twice … Lucy’s astray
Flip-flop moods … find yesterday
Warning … quiet … as a mouse
Rambling … through the house
Red flags up … it’s Lady Blue
The unpleasant … side … of you.

COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO

You’re awake …early
I awoke too
Listening to whistling
It’s NOT Lady blue!

I was dreaming …no worries
Enjoying the view
Now … wondering …why
You’re up …quarter past two!

Quiet as a mouse …NOT
You’ve cat napped …renewed
Your inner clock …says
Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Wake Up Call

Six o’clock …wake up call
Lady Blue …in the house
TV’s …blaring
NOT quiet as a mouse.

Mean and nasty words
Are said
I just wish
You’d …go to bed!

So …I’m up and dressed
And …wait this through
And pray …Dear God
Are you up too?
