Being A Caregiver

being a caregiver takes a lot of guts love and willpower
they are Strong people to survive the rigors of alzheimers
that is why they are all survivors from start to finish
they know what has to be done and they do it no questions
can anyone survive being a caregiver

i dont think everyone is a survivor or able to be a caregiver
so many people turn away out of fear as if it was contagious
they dont know what to say maybe hello would be nice
i guess it all boils down to being afraid of the unknown
can anyone survive being a caregiver

caregivers and victims live the unknown all the time
we cant let that control our days we have too much to do
meeting their demands doesnt give us time for anything else
our job is time consuming but its an act of love our love
can anyone survive being a caregiver

we learn to laugh at things they do or say so we dont cry
we shed our tears in privacy of our bed away from them
we try to make their remaining time a happy one if we can
and we try to gather all the memories we Can for when theyre gone
can anyone survive being a caregiver
