A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Vulnerable

Wanting to be … left alone
Leaves you … vulnerable
Hard … to help … you
Now you’re … in a stew
You’ve closed … the door
No help … no more
But wait … they know
They’ve cared for others
Like you
They know … you’re in
A stew
No worries … kindness
I see
When you’re away
From me!

Perfect Fit

Why left ‘n right
Why big ‘n small
Why toes ‘n fingers
Fit … at all
Shoes should be
Same shape ‘n size
Then …confusion’s
Set … aside
No more wondering
Right or wrong
No more sadness
Blues to song
Fingers should be
Like toes too
Gloves fit … perfect
End Alzheimer’s stew!

Compassion … You

He shuffles  around … head hanging down
No telling thoughts he wears with a frown
No  words …  as you pass in the hall
You’re  concerned … he’s not talking at all
It’s okay Mom, his business, not yours
Must leave him alone … be reassured
He is where he is …  to you it’s absurd
Doesn’t want to be … sad  … you say
As you turn … giving smiles away
You worry ‘n fret … ponder … stew
Compassion …empathy … you.
