An Alzheimer's request 

(a disease of forgetfulness) 

 

I understand it's difficult for you to see me going through this. 

I understand you feel broken when I no longer recognize you. 

But stay strong.Dont forget my love, though I forget you.

 

My body is here but my mind is lost.

I can hear your voice ,but can't recognize it. 

I can see your face, but cannot identify you.

But don't forget my love, though I forget you. 

 

My mind is taking me where I don't want to go. 

I can't control it. It is slowing and will die. 

I won't behave the same way I used to. 

But don't forget my love, though I forget you. 

 

I'm sorry for this burden I put on you.

But don't lose your patience with me .

Instead of cursing me pray for my betterment. 

Please don't forget my love, though I forget you. 

 

I want you to love me the way you used to. 

I want you to kiss my forehead when I don't understand things.

I want you to treat me with respect. 

Never ever forget my love, though I forget you...
