If Alzheimer’s Erases Your Name
Memories with no recollection
like a warm beach without sand
how could I gaze into your eyes
and not feel what I breath today
If nostalgia becomes a stranger
who will reminisce over photos I
will miss? Will you remind me of
remembrances that I won’t find
After all that we conquered, our
love deserves a better fate. Will
you remember for the two of us
if Alzheimer’s erases your name
Please note: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME. Well, nothing that a chocolate layer cake, a glass of wine, & a warm kiss won’t cure (not in that order). I recently had a brief conversation with a blogging friend who mentioned her mother suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. I have little fear of death, but I do worry about Alzheimer’s. I can’t imagine not remembering my daughter or Allie.
For more information on Alzheimer’s please visit this link from my friend Doctor Jonathan Neal Colton at All About Healthy Choices.
