A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Acquaintances

Intermittent … smiles … cheery nods … hello
Memories … bethink … from long ago
Lost time … in your mind … conceived
A look … or act … binds … familiarity
Acquaintances … query … we met … before?
Mind’s eye… embraces … helpful conspirator
Pleasurable … everyone‘s … smiley ‘n happy
Reality check … gibberish … represses getting sappy!

Shoo Fears

Strong … powerful minds … lost … over time
Pondering … yesterday … shoos happiness away
I can care for … myself … I do believe
The Alzheimer’s mind … works to deceive
Over and over … you’ve heard your story
Again and again … forgotten … it all
Am I tired of repeating myself to you?
Telling fib-lets … and trying to stall?
Definitely … exasperating … tears!
But … I’m just watching … you’re
Tormented … with … fears.

Serendipity

Of new babies … Mom wound say
A piece of humanity … born today
Many kids … cared for … plus me
Housewife … mother … serendipity
Surely … there were hills to climb
Surely… time passed … too fast
Unselfish ways … your fate
Unkindness always had to wait
Always … said a prayer for me
Unpleasantness ‘n fear … did flee
And I for her … my whole life thru
Since leaving home … a long adieu
My heart … kept … running … back
Never … could I tarry … long
I grew stronger … years went by
Less time spent … asking why
Life catches you … by the hand
Throws you out … when unplanned
But thank you Jesus … right on time
Thru tears and grief … perfect … prime
I get to spend … time with Mother
A blessing for me … like no other!

Stepping Stones

Going to your room … to the wood shed
I’m getting … a whipping … I know
Constantly asking, “why am I here”
You’re stuck in a rut … a plateau
You’re confused … half-way lucid
Puzzled … life’s … chain of events
I tread lightly … stay on dry ground
Stepping on stones … heaven … sent
My heart wants … a conversation
But it’s … all one-sided … for you
Tunneling down … aggravation
No answers but yours … will do
Humbly … I bow … to tomorrow
It’s merely … a whisper in time
A new day … is … dawning
But … I … know … this … day
Will … rewind.

Actuality

Oceans … memories … slap the shore
Seaweed’s confusion … hungry for more
Floating aimlessly … piles of debris
Knots ‘n tangles … captivity
Continuous surges … underscore
Wadded debris … on reality’s shore
Tangles ‘n webs … forever to be
Time’s passing gaps … actuality.

Angel Eyes

Old habits … hard to ignore
Meander thru time … forevermore
Sad… you say … till daylight’s restored
Not ready … to pillow your head
Most around you … snoring in bed
You fight sleep … seen this before
A night owl … walking the floor
Your angels … go with your flow
Keep eyes on you … incognito!

Wiggle Or Jar

Negative vibes swaying your day
Positive whispers … faded away
Wanting to unwind … yesterday
Unfold time … stolen … away
Strolling down streets swirled in your head
Fragments of memories … pieces now … wed
Yearning to learn why you are where you are
Trying to grasp time … wiggle … or jar.

Crooked Line

Mother asks … a question
Heavens… Open wide
Observing us … below
Wonder … proud of us?
No way … to know!
Did I help my neighbor
Was kindness bestowed
Was kindness received
Are we stuck … did we grow
Pondering … the question
If you’re asking … you’ve the time
To help another brother
Keep off the crooked line.

To Be … Roam Free

The shepherd … walks away
All the sheep … go astray
Wandering … thru the halls
Some grimace … some fall
Some wallow … in grief
Some need … pillow relief
Some need help … to walk
Some need time … to talk
All need … a … touch
A helping hand … to clutch
Regardless … time … of day
All need help … some way
To be … and yet … roam free.

Lost …Today

Lost … today …no place …to go
Need directions …which way …to sow
Does anyone know …how long it lasts?
The day …has it gone …into …the past?
Hoping to find …no matter …how long
A memory in time …where this day has gone.
