Alzheimers Plays for Keeps


Photobucket
we begin our saga of pain with the early stages
you see very little except for the forgetfulness
as time passes it all seems such a slow progress
one morning you wake as usual and reality hits
you suddenly know alzheimers plays for keeps

we suddenly find them following everywhere we go
you step from the room and they begin calling you
there is now no private times available for you
we've discovered the world of shadowing in its glory
you suddenly know alzheimers plays for keeps

then you may find another world open up for you
this appears when the sun retreats for the night
they become disoriented and confused you cant reason
welcome to the world of sundowning you can do without
you suddenly know alzheimers plays for keeps

it continues to get worse their world and your world
no longer meets the person you knew no longer exist  
you live a world apart you share you home with a stranger
begin to feel the terror of what you are going to life with
you suddenly know alzheimers plays for keeps

the worst is yet to come when they are no longer able
to function their body begins to shut down one by one
till the inevitable happens they are released you feel
relief that your agony is over then you feel loneliness
you suddenly know alzheimers plays for keeps
