A journey in time with Alzheimer's

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.

Treasure on a shelf

Mary doll sits, on top of a shelf
I spy her often, say to myself
You’re a bright spot in my day
You lightened Mom’s load
A treasure … I’d say
Because you were there
She gave smiles away
You filled …  a void
She needed …  to care
You kept her …  from
Deepening … despair.

Smiley face

Morning madness … be gone
Sad countenance … move on
Smiley face … chase blues away
Spirits lifted …  thru the day
No matter how or why blue
Attitudes …  choices
Made by … you.

When I think of my Mother, it’s her smiley face I miss most of all.

 

 

 

Angelic soul

Saw an angel … sleeping …  today
Soft white hair …  in a pillow lay
Curled up snug … no cares … no woes
Why dementia … only heaven knows
No worry lines … in her sweet face
Stress relieved … by God’s grace
Someone’s … Mom … someone’s … friend
Someone’s … Auntie … someone’s … kin
Bidding time … nowhere special to be
A precious sight … we all agree
Kindness is free … treat her … tenderly
Paramedics came … to take her home
Back to … where they … care for her
Picked up  gently … not a stir
Smiles … all around … a sigh or two
Moment of sweetness … in a hectic  day
Angelic soul … sent our way.

Yappy smiles

 

Picture a smile …  both ends spread far
No return smiles … sadness … ajar
All day long … no happy to see
How dreary a world … that would be
Now take that …  same smile
Spread it …. far …  and … wide
Contagious … return smiles … won’t hide
In time … others will join … the happy
Oodles ‘n oodles smile ‘n get yappy!

Turvy smile

Twas … long ago … it seems today
When Momma … smiled my blues away
Always … gave … helping … hand
Never … giving others … slam
Soon … Thanksgiving will be … here
Then follows … Christmas … cheer
My favorite … family … times
Without Momma … sadly … find
Need to turn my … turvy smile
Inside out … right side … to you
When lovely ones … read my words
Makes me smile … N O T B L U E!

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.

Life proclaimed

Walking the (secure) unit
Many heads … bowed low
Is it time for sleep? What?
No sure way … to know
Passing through the ranks
Softly calling … names
Eyes rise … sweet smiles
Acknowledge
Life proclaimed!

Sweetly blow

Clearly … baby dolls …. fill a void
Caring for them … as … a child
Gentleness … tenderness
Keeps you calm … versus wild
Yesterday’s faces … memories
Seem to have … faded away

At least … from … outward signs
Silence … forgetting … portrayed
We’re talking about … baby dolls
I say … let’s find … your kid
Then out of the blue … you expound
(You have five … heaven forbid)
Sharon … Sis … Bill … Meta … David
Children you birthed … long ago
You reeled off their names quickly
(Smiled … raised your eyes)
Whispers of time … sweetly blow.

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.
