A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Seeking Yesterday

Nine little elves … sitting on a shelf
Eight jumped off … left  was self
Empathy … where can they be
What’s the matter …why’d they flee
Questions … answers …never jive
Crossed tangles …never survive
Seeking yesterday …headed for tomorrow
Needing … to fill … a hollow …sorrow.

Can’t …Is a Fact!

Your symptoms worsen
I’m thinking …O.K.
We’re going that way
What come …what may!

Then, I see you spitting
Your meds in the trash
I’m thinking …
I can’t yell out …or lash!

You’re not together
That …is a fact
No fretting … worrying
Will … ever… change that!

So …onward we trudge
Toward tomorrow
Some days good, some not
As I … wallow in sorrow!

I bet I’ll stand there and watch her swallow! Ya think? My sister Sharon says “be the tiger”
