Who Are We


Photobucket
i am an old lady who lives deep within myself
i have no one who cares for me i embarrass them
i have my moments as do we all just more than most
now im in a nursing home i dont really know why
i come and go all the time i ask who are we

im an old man i have caregivers care for me all hired
my children come to see me only when i behave
i guess i really cant blame them but i do miss them
i cant control how i am i wonder why they dont understand
i come and go all the time i ask who are we

im a young woman life is just beginning for me what happened
i dont understand why me i still have my life ahead of me
this just cant be happening to me its got to be a mistake
im too young for this its only for old people not young
i come and go all the time i ask who are we

they come from all walks of life they are of all ages
they are men and women who had constructive lives to live
how this could happen to them we do not really know
but happen it did now they are all victims of alzheimers
i come and go all the time i ask who are we
