Lost Memories (Alzheimers)

rose-889561_960_720

Drowning in a pool of my inner self

Unable to remember, to see clearly.

Time rob me of all I knew, everything I hold dear

Erased, like the dew that slips through at day break

So does memories of you.

I held them once; your memories,

They kept me through the years

Fading slowing, I tried to hold on.

I felt them now!

Deep down in the grey remains, I see your face

Smiling, bidding me to remember

To reach for what’s no longer there.

I reached out and touched loneliness

I smiled; knowing I can’t miss what’s not there.

Emptiness has filled the void where you once lived.

I knew you once!

I knew you when time was on my side

When promises burst open

And I fell deeply In love with you.

Now, remember me

As I was then

As I am now©

Timely Intervention

Running

Battered feet

Unwilling heart

Along the way

Bitterness sets in

Walking a dark path

Timely intervention needed

Route 192©
