How long?

I wrote this poem.  Sometimes it’s so hard to bear watching my mom go downhill everyday. So it helps me to write and share with all of you.  Today I’m raising money for Alzheimer’s called the Longest day!  Everyone can help a little.  I hope my blog helps someone out there who is facing this too.  Know that you are not alone!  Have a wonderful day!😀🌼

How long

Will you remember me?

How long will it be?

I do not know!

I only know that

I love you!

No matter what!

You are my mother

And you will

Always be!

How long

Is it going to be

Before everything changes?

I don’t even want to think

About it!

But I know I have to

Face it somehow!

But how long?

Good ole days

I wrote this poem.  I miss the times when my mom could do more.  It’s hard sometimes but I’m glad she’s still here and I can spend time with her.  Have a great day!🌼

I wish I could go back

To the good old days!

Days before all this

Disease hit!

When my parents were well.

I would give anything to go

Over there and have a famous Blt

Again for lunch!

Like my mom always made me or

A nice bowl of jello with

Fruit cocktail in it!

I miss those days when my

Mom knew what was going on

And I could talk to her without

Her asking me the same things

Over and over again!

I miss those days of just

Enjoying being together!

You might think it doesn’t matter

But cherish the days that you have

Because you never know how

Long it will last!

It would be great just to have those

Simple!

Little things back again!

You might just say the

Good ole days!😀🌼

Goodbye

I wrote this poem.  I started this blog because of my mom having dementia and Alzheimer’s and a great deal of my family has it too.  My mom is struggling right now and she has a great deal of challenges.   It helps me to write and share with all of you.  Have a great day!

How can I say goodbye

After all these years

And tears!

It’s so hard to understand

What your going through!

I love you so much mom

I would give anything to feel

Your touch again!

But if the Lord decides

He wants you

There will be nothing

That I can do!

I know it will end

Your pain!

And set you free!

But you won’t be

With me!

I will miss you

So much!

But I know I

Will feel your touch again

Sometime, somewhere!🌼😀

Mom

Happy Monday!  I wrote this poem! It seems like my mom is slipping away from us more and more each day! Sometimes it’s so hard to bare.  So it helps me to write.  I appreciate all of you so much!  Have a wonderful day!😀

I want my mom back

Like she was before!

I want more time

With her!

I want her to remember

All the times we’ve shared!

I want her to remember my

Steps that I took when I was

A little child.  I want her to remember

When I was a teenager and came home

Late and then grew up and got married

To have her grandchildren!

I want more time

I want her to remember all

The love and tears and

Laughter we shared!

I need more time

With her!

It breaks my heart

To be far apart!

It’s not fair that I care

So much!

I need more time

I have things to

Say to her I need her to be

With me to lift me up

When I fall down!

I need her to carry me!

Carry me!

Please mom come back to me!

I miss you so much!🌼😀
