|Once called dimentia, now Alzhiemers is surely a thief.
Taking from not only the patient, but also the friends and family that love them.
I think if that happens to me someday I may just shoot myself, if I can remember where I put the gun.

|This is perfectly captured. Very powerfully written.|

|So cleverly wrought, Rose, and your form makes the impact even greater. Such robbing squeezes the lifeblood from the heart and mind at times - but ah the special blessing when a window opens somewhere and light shines through! Powerfully and compassionately penned as always. xx|

|Tender and compassionate, Rose,
but, for me, with a great deal of sadness
your writing manages to rise above.

|Rose, this is so sad, so true and so well written, but so sad. My Mum is 83 and for the last year, we have seen it coming. We are now fully involved with "... a time before..." Unless you object, I’ll plan to share this unique work with her two daughters.
Thank you. Dick

|My, God, Rose, at times words truly escape me and I find myself absolutely unable to respond to words as touching and heartfelt as these. This, without a doubt, at least in my opinion, is the best that you've ever written.
|Reviewed by Gene Williamson
|As always, Rose, love lives on in your heart and memory...
and in these skillfully, beautifully, crafted lines. -gene.

|Senility is what they called it years ago at least that's what comes to my mind, but this is an opened ended poem with more than one interpretation. Sad on both ends.
