Sometimes we try so hard and it feels like we hit a brick wall but we make it through. Right now it feels like I’m doing that. My mom is not doing to good and it’s very frustrating. We took her to the doctor and she didn’t remember my name which is very hard to take in and she is getting progressively worse Day by day. Please can you please just pray for strength for my dad and my family ! I would appreciate it very much! I know God is in control but it’s very hard. I wrote this poem have a great day!😊

I try and try

And it ain’t no lie.

I wish it was easier


It’s a uphill battle

And it makes me

Scream and shout!

All these things

Come against me

I just want to be

Set free from

All this!

Stress and feel

Like I’m

Truly blessed

I wrote this poem.  We are going

into the new year and we all have dreams that we want to happen.  I wrote this exactly one year ago.  I hope you like it.  You are never to old to dream big dreams! 🌼😊 Have a great day!


When you close your eyes

You rest and think about

So many things a

Great deal of what

Life brings!

You don’t understand

It all!

You wonder what is going on?

And when it is

A reality?

Does it mean anything?

Or it something you

Just make up?

Is there a purpose behind

All of this?

You try and see but it’s

So hard


You know there is a

Purpose somewhere

And someone Cares

For you!😊🌼

Some days are very hard when you have two parents who need you.  But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I know I’m doing the right thing for now.  It helps me to share and write.

Have a wonderful day.

I wonder

How my mom is?

How my dad is?

It feels like I go

Around and around

I wonder

How they are?

They are both sick and

In pain!

I’m just their


What can I do?

All I can do is

Pray and hope!

They are ok and get

Well again and

Get healed and

Get back to the way

They once were!

Help me

I wrote this poem a while ago. Sometimes you just don’t feel good and you want relief somewhere. I hope this helps someone out there who is struggling. I know we all need support sometimes. I know God knows and he cares for us. ❤️ Have a wonderful day!

Help me

Help me

I feel like I’m falling

And I can’t make it


I’m scared and I

Don’t know why?

Please I need your help

So much!

I can’t make it

Without you!

I need to relax if only

For a while so I can

Smile again!

It’s been so long but

I need to be strong

In you!

But what do I do?

But trust fully

In you

When I’m feeling

Nothing but

Dear Mom

Most of you know my mom has dementia and sometimes it’s very hard to deal with.  It helps me to write about it and to share. I wrote this poem.  It’s my wish that I could help someone out there who is facing this terrible disease with a friend or family member.  Know that your not alone and someone cares. Have a great day!

Oh mom

I wish I could go

Back when you were

Free from all of this


It’s not fair that

Your missing out on all these


I will remember for you I will

Help you I will be there for you

No matter what!

When I was little you were there and

All through my life and you have

Made me into the person I

Am today because of you!

Now I will be there for you

Even when it’s so blue!

You have given so much

I just want to feel your

Touch again!

I am proud to call you

My mom and I hope

Someday you will know

And never forget me!

Please mom don’t

Forget me?

Forget me!😊❤️

I wrote this poem.  My mom is doing ok and I’m her personal aide now.  I’m glad I’m able to help her but it’s a lot to take in sometimes. Have a wonderful day!😊

I wish there

Was something I

Could do for her!

All of these tests

All of these visits!

It’s so much to bare!

I care so much

For her the

Mother who gave

Birth to me!

Sometimes I just wish

She would be set free

From all of this disease!

It hurts more than you

Can know!

To see her cry with tears

Falling down her face!

You just want to run away

And not have to bear this


But what can I do?

I do not know!

I wish I did!

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


Little things back again!

You might just say the

Good ole days!😀🌼

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!🌼😀

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!🌼😀
