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.
Last week I read a lovely little poem (entitled Questions Without Answers) on a blog page of lovely poetry called A Reading Writer. I have attached the link for anyone interested in reading the inspirational piece. Thank you Rosema for the inspiration.
It was a warm summer night when
we slow danced on a quiet tropical
beach. Your soft cheek caressed my
five o’clock shadow. The full moon
glowed in your intoxicating eyes as
you said the words I longed to hear.
Then there was that night we drank
sweet merlot and read love poems
by candle light. We made love until
dawn. And I brushed your silky hair
as you slept in my arms. That night
you promised me to love me forever
Perhaps, one day I will finally build
the courage to approach you. Then
I could tell you how I feel. But until
that day I will sit here, alone in my
dark lonely corner, clinging to these
treasured memories that never were
Please note: Lonely Author will be in and out of the blog today. Having a big barbecue with tons of guests, food, and wine. My best friend who I have often written about is moving to Tampa, Florida on Monday. Allie and I planned a farewell bash for her. The Chimp assures you he will be on his best behavior. (You really don’t believe that, do you? Well, honestly, niether do I).
Have a wonderful weekend full of sunshine and smiles.
