Hello everyone,
I am new here and would like to say that is a beautiful poem...
I too write poetry and have a book,  Being Mamas' caregiver for three and a half years inspired me to write my feelings in poetry form and later to write in bookform our experiments as to what this family endured as Alzheimer's took it's toll on such a beautiful lady. God Bless All who are experiencing the devastation of such a disease as this!


When It's Alzheimer's . . .

Watching her while she sits
not knowing where she is
For just a brief moment
I could feel a soft warm kiss
When as a child, she'd tuck me in
wiping tears from her eyes
"Sleep peacefully, my sweet girl,
dream only of butterflies
For they remind us of new beginnings
when all is well and done
Do not be troubled in your life
wake each day with appreciation"
I had watched her mind fading fast
her dreams had all vanished
Memories of her loved ones
she'd forgotten those she cherished
When it's Alzheimer's
this cruel disease had taken away her life
Making her forget her children
or that once she was a wife
Not remembering who we were
was the worst I recall
When it's Alzheimer's it really cut deep
She was my Mother after all . . . .

Thank you for such a warm welcome... I lost my mom six years ago yet it seems like yesterday. Sorry about your loved one and really no one forgets the torment an Alzheimer's victim goes through, that is why I wrote Moms book... God bless you and yours as you heal from such a loss...Sylvia
