Alzheimers Patient's Ple

painteddragonApril 7, 2011

Do not ask me to remember

Don't try to make me understand

Let me rest and know your with me

Kiss my cheek and hold my hand

I'm confused beyond your concept

I am 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 curse or cry

I can't help the way I'm acting

Can't be different if 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 till my life is gone

Describes my husband exactly. He used to be someone else, I miss him so.

Mine too Jannie, on those few days or even just hours when he seems to be "normal", I've learned to stop what I'm doing and converse with him or even just hold his hand or give him a hug--because most of the time it's like someone I don't know is now in his body. Luvs
