My Poem about Alzheimers

Here’s my poem. I’ll turn it into a song one day. I’ve written it because this week it was World Alzheimer’s Day.

I’ve forgotten which day of the week it was (normal memory loss).

 

Moments of Grace

He’s not like the man you married

Slowly pieces of him fading away

into memories

I sigh and my heart is heavy tonight

make it light, Yah

I need a Moment of Grace

 

We’re losing him, too, Mum

A Grandad we love

He’s slowly going back where we can’t go

back to the early days, to the farm, to the family we don’t know

So we cry sometimes

We need Moments of Grace

 

But then a piece of blue sky

appears in the cloud

We see a bud, new life

A bird sings and builds a nest

We are here today now

the past is gone,

He’s going back there, not alone

but we need Moments of Grace

 

For today its enough to say

we’re here with you

Lets create a happy memory now

Look at our blessings and count them

Hang on, the storm is blowing over

And the sunshine of Glory is coming.

We have Moments of Hope

 

Together we’ll be strong

The Grace and Love of Yah will

Carry us along

together

We have Moments of Grace

 

Mum
