Remember Me

I wrote this poem.  My mom has Alzheimer’s disease and it’s so hard to think about one day she might not no who I am.  So I wrote this with tears running down my face.  I pray for her healing !  I hope this helps someone out there who also is facing this with  a friend or family member!  Have a great weekend.

I want to make

Her a memory book

So when she looks

She will remember

Me.

How can I keep All

Of her memories

In a book of

My life and strife.

It cuts me so deep

It almost puts me to

Sleep.

I know she cares

Somewhere.

I want her to know

That I love her

And I will never

Forget her

Cuz

She’s my mother

And nothing will

Ever erase that!

Nothing!😊🌼

    Heartbreaking, I feel your pain and wish both your mum and yourself peace in the future. A memory book sounds like a great idea 🙂

    The first time my mama didn’t know who I was killed me. I felt almost as if I didn’t exist if she didn’t remember me. But I learned to accept those times. It still hurt but I knew that she’d loved me and remembered everything about my life as long as she could. And I reminded myself that it was up to me to make sure her grandchildren remembered her since she couldn’t share her wonderful life stories with them any more. This will probably be the hardest thing you’ll face in your life. But you’re not alone and there are those of us who are here if you ever need to talk.

    My husband’s grandpa had alzheimers. His grandma faithfully went to the nursing home every day and sat by his side (for many years) even though he had no idea who she was. I think it comforted both of them to have her there. My prayers are with you.

    I took care of my grandmother when she faded away. At the end, she recognized me and my infant daughter before she passed. It was a gift! Alzheimer’s is a painful condition to watch and deal with. Hugs to you!

    What a beautiful poem – thank you for sharing! My dad died from Alzheimer’s and now my mom is in the throes of this awful disease. There are moments now that she does not know me, but I take comfort in the fact she at least accepts me as someone is is bestowing love and kindness to her. Sad, sad times…
