Alzheimer's Disease. I have watched it affect others and now it's hit my own family. It's a hard thing.

Beginning to Say Goodbye


Your mind is going and I know itís tough.

I search for you.

Your memories of dignity, hidden stuff.

I feel for you.

You live in a world of your own making now

I reach for you.

Soon your world will be too far from how

Iím loving you.


Kathy Adams

When you begin to say goodby you will find that it is a long goodby. Find comfort in the knowledge that soon he will become very happy in his world. Remain faithful to him, protect him as I know you will. He may not recognize his family members but he will feel the love along with the warmth.

Kathy, through it all, I have to believe the love gets through, no matter how impenetrable the mind seems.
Remember, God is faithful and will not give you more than you can bear with Him beside you to give you His strength and comfort.
Not to imply that it's an easy road--it's heartbreaking--but He will be with you, and He will understand and help through it all.

So sad. I believe that Alzheimer's has to be one of the very saddest of diseases that plagues this world.

Sigh . . . I truly believe I am in the early stages of it . . . Ni kidding . . . My lapses are much more pronounced than just "getting old."

Alzheimer's Disease is so sad, not only for the patient, but also for the caregivers who look after the patient, whether nursing staff or family members. Your poem speaks volumes toward the things the caregiver so wants to convey, yet due to the mere nature of the illness, sometimes cannot.
Thank you for sharing this poem. I'm sure your words will touch many.

All the best,
