Written about an Alzheimer's friend!


'Where are those keys? My glasses, too?' 
Yes, as she spoke, she had no clue
What could have happened, for you see,
Forgetfulness has come to be
A way of life for her these days.
'My life now daily is a maze!'
She uttered slowly as she cried-
With diligence she searched inside
Herself, and pondered how it was
Her life had now become a cause!
For those who loved her would no doubt
Make haste to turn her inside out
With questions difficult to solve,
And answers that would soon evolve
Would make no sense, for reason now-
A thing of past, replaced somehow
By folly, yes and unconcern-
This one who once did steady yearn
To be abreast of all her deeds,
Now full of constant, daily needs-
While she is not at times aware
Of her surroundings, yes, no care,
Just living life within a shell.
The end? For sure no one can tell,
How soon? how long? this trek will last,
Alzheimer's victim! Only past
Events from time to time arise-
Then, with a glimmer in her eyes,
She smiles and nods her head in jest,
A vague remembrance of the best
That life afforded - now is gone,
And in the end, she'll be alone!
The loved ones, though they're loved for sure,
Will fade from view because no cure
Can bring her back to life she knew,
God only knows the future view
Will lie within eternal bliss,
What He's prepared surpasses this
That finally will slip away,
And in its place a brand new day-

D.S. Mullis

Very sad to remain on the side lines and observe one slipping away. Watched my mother slowly slip away to the point where her family was unrecognizable, touching write...
