I write opoems and some of you already know my Mum and dad both have Alzheimers . My aunt died 4 years ago she had Alzheimers , I wrote this poem for her and my son suggested I might like to share it with you so here goes , Alzheimers Please stop and think Because as we get old We don't always remember The things we are told We remember the stories Of times that have passed And especially the good things AS we want them to last But something you said at the start of the day Oh! what was that? What did you say? You really don't want me To store every thought There must be some things Even you have forgot Where did I come from? Where did I go? I'm getting upset As my brain is too slow I was a Mum with two kids on the go I'm here in this home now Don't know who I am Don't know if my name is Mary or Nan But please do remember And please always care As the person I was Is still in here somewhere

weemam i could only visualize how hard you are dealing with your parents. just like going down stair by stair bump after bump. your poems puts in a lot of strength that you hold within you. but the last couple of lines just stopped me to think ''As the person I was Is still in here somewhere''. is that you are tired but still hold the strength to say 'any more there''?
