days past long ago when she walked with me
when i could reach deep into her soul and see her
seeing her as she use to be my mother my friend
those days are gone my time with her is past

bridging the gap between her and me was hard
seeing her slip into that abyss of her world
filled my heart with sadnews yet for a time we were one
those days are gone my time with her is past

letting her be herself yet letting her know i was there
held a richness all it own i lost a mother but gained a friend
sharing our short time together just her and me
those days are gone my time with her is past
 

she gave me a whole lifetime hers and mine
though i feel her loss i treasure her memories forever
alzheimers will never take those away from me
those days are gone my time with her is past

though i feel her loss, i treasure her memories forever

A truly heartfelt piece, Mary Etta. And memories that we can always treasure are truly wondrous.
