He’ll Never See Home Again


Yesterday he passed out

 and we don’t know why.

The doctor

 put him in the hospital

for observation

and to let some time

pass by

so we can arrange

 for him to go

 to an Alzheimer’s unit

and be safe and

 cared for every hour.

None of us who love him

 can be with him all the time.

All of us hate doing this,

 We’re struck down

with Sorry's bitter power.

His safety is the main thing

and love demands what’s best.

His dignity,

his freedom,

 his mind,

 have failed the test.

He doesn’t know it yet,

 but he will never go home again.

Tomorrow we have to tell him

 and we already share his pain.


Kathy Adams

Well it wasn't long til he went to his real home in Heaven. Just read your latest write after all you have gone through. This tells that is was not going to be an easy time and my prayers went out for you.

...there is much sad news in these words...and in your decision...are my thoughts of goodness...there is no pain which knows something one may forget...and others never will.
my thoughts and prayers are with you...

Oh boy how I understand what you are saying, you certainly have struck a chord on emotions kept concealed. Artfully written and heartwrenchingly touching. Losing both my parents to Alzheimer's, know that my thoughts, well wishes and prayers are with you....

Be always safe,

Oh Kathy I feel the pain that you are about to face and for what he is going through. My prayers are with all of you. I m sure given a few days he will adjust along with your visits so he doesn't feel forgotten.

My prayers are with you! This is one of the hardest of life's tests. The pain and sorrow loved ones feel at having to put someone in a home can be torture. But you have made the right choice! Having nursed Alsheimer's patients,I know they are mostly unaware of where they are and who is with them,so you should not beat yourselves up over your decision.As long as you visit him,and see he is properly cared for. Gob bless you!

There are no words to convey the depth of my sympathy. My prayers go with you and your family. Rebecca

Oh, this hurts - words are inadequate, except, "I'm sorry." You and your family are in my prayers -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
