To all of the families in our world who deal with this disease every day.  I can only wish you the best. Nothing more I could say.

 

When did this happen, my turning old?

Now my children help me put on my cloths.

Where is the young girl I use to be?

Who is that in the mirror, the reflection I see?

How could have time flew by so fast?

What happen to my dreams they now have passed?

 Can time be restored to my good old days?

Or is my mind forever to be dazed?

My daughter holds me and cry’s” mama you don’t remember my name?”

I hang my head in sorrow and I’m feeling very ashamed.

My past memories are like they were just yesterday,

But with each day that dawns they slip far away.

Till I’m at a point when frustration has set in,

I sit in a corner wondering where have I been.

How did I get here and who are you people, I ask?

What happen to your dad, I say with a gasp?

The kids explain to me each and every day,

That their dad, my husband has passed away.

With the days passing and turning into night,

I sit in my room longing for a clear minded life.

My life is growing darker with each passing day,

But, why of all things did my memories have to be taken away.
