Alzheimer’s- By Sue K Green It captured her mind, confounded her senses Loved ones were oft times strangers Reflections and names that would come and go Hers, were mixed memories and broken connections Confused, capricious, contrary, adrift in time and places Wandering, wondering knowing, not knowing We walked at her side carefully, respectfully She may not have known our names, but she knew kindness We can’t know if the sound of our voices the smiles on our faces touched upon familiar We feel blessed for the time we had with her So restless in those last years May she rest in peace © Sue k Green 09/03/2020
