Alzheimer's Request

Saturday, August 24, 2013

(My mom saw this in email or papers she had, but we have some relatives and friends with Alzheimer's and I know many of you have family or friends with Alzheimer's as well.).

Alzheimer's Request

Do not ask me to remember,
Don't try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you're with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

I'm confused beyond your concept,
I'm sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you,
To be with me at all cost.

Do not lose your patience with me,
do not scold, or curse, or cry.
I can't help the way I'm acting,
I can't be different, though I try.

Just remember that I need you,
That the best of me is gone,
Please don't fail to stand beside me.
Love me 'til my life is gone.
