A guiding star

Happier than you’ve ever been
Heavenly days, with Jesus your friend
Many people, you led His way
It’s all in your … resume’
Many hearts, happiness abounds
Because you shone His light around
Earth is a sweeter place … by far
Because you were … a guiding star!

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.

Thunders above

Breezes whisper … in my ears
Can you see … do you hear
Silence … thunders above
God’s wonders wrapped in love
Above the clouds nestled nigh
Raindrops … fell from the sky
Followed red,blue,green ‘n gold
Rainbow’s colors bright’n bold
Reminders … when spirits fall
He’s in control … of it all!

A breath away

So far removed … from me
Yet close … a breath … away
Your voice whispers … breezes blow
I hug the air … stay … don’t go
Tricks played … mind’s eye
No rhyme … no reason … why
My heart’s … always missing you
My head nods … even Lady Blue!

Just thinking

Daily … thoughts … wandering
Not sure … why … where
Just … hanging … around
Sanity … floating … beware
Lost my friend … to heaven
It’s been a bit … of time
Heart’s having … troubles
Rationale … lingering behind
So en-grained … in my life
Then … ignorant … how much
Unaware … extent of loss
Till … no longer … in touch.

Revolving door

Deja’vu  … ” revolving door”
Witnessed  … many times before
You’re … here … suddenly
Swish … gone … unexpectedly
Lucid Lucy  … passes through
Ultimately … emerges … Lady Blue
Whispers of time … breezes blow
You’re here … yet not … incognito.

Tight hold

Holding … fast … what makes sense
I get it … living … this side of the fence
Few moments … you’re not sad or blue
Wanting to leave … seek out … you
Long ago places … people … you knew
Whispers of time … flee Alzheimer’s stew
Observing … Lucid Lucy … today
Hurry Mother … let’s run and play
But then … we get … to the … fence
You struggle … confused … no sense
I’m yelling … come Mother … away
But … atlas … you can’t … you stay
Grasp of Lady-blue … like no other
Has a tight hold … my sweet Mother!

Circumstance

Wandering hallways … pause ‘n look
Tomorrow … yesterday’s nook
Precious treasures … seek ‘n peek
From yesterday … previewed … sneak
Trinkets … fondled … in the hand
Strings of beads … fun … unplanned
Hesitation … a moment’s glance
Yesterday’s tomorrow … circumstance.

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.

Even a moment

I see you every day … hi Sis … by the way
So glad I’m on your page … in your head
You recognize me … but … sometimes not
I’m someone nice … help bathe … feed you
I’m not a daughter … then … doesn’t last
A few moments … flabbergast … Sis, that you?
Calls out … Lady-blue … so glad you’re here
Muddled ‘n confused … misunderstood
I listen to your woes … anyone … would
Telephone calls … from miles … away
Loved ones … want to cheer you … up
Hear your voice … give hearts bouquets
But … then … suspicious … Lady-blue
Doesn’t know … what I do .. of you
Those loved ones … miles … away
Give you thought … make you ponder
Memories past … your heart wanders
Their love of you … your need to hear
Even a moment … draws … you … near!
