Forgotten ones

I wrote this poem. My mom is in a nursing home and I visit with her quite often. When I visit the people there look so sad because hardly any of their family visits them. Have a great day!

Forgotten ones

These are the people

That need us the most

They are our fathers, mothers

Sisters, brothers

But they have been placed

Like they were erased

Nobody comes to

Visit them.

You can see it on their face

The loneliness and pain

All they want is for someone

To love them and to show

Them they care.

All they might need is a smile.

These are the forgotten ones.

Pieces

I wrote this poem. My dad passed away about 3 months ago and it’s been very difficult on me. My moms in a nursing home and I can go visit her but it’s not the same anymore. I’m trying my best for her so it helps me to write and share. I hope you like it. Have a great day.😊

How do I pick up

The broken pieces

To my heart

It’s shattered in a million pieces.

I don’t know where to start

My dad is gone now and

My mom has no mind

Left to even know who I am

It’s very hard to understand

All the things that are important

To hug and tell the people that you love

How you feel!

All you can do is try and go on

Without them.

Less chair

My dads been gone two months today! I still miss him very much. It still doesn’t seem possible to me that he’s gone but he is and I got to get used of it ! This Christmas will be very hard cuz this will be my first Christmas without my dad. My mom is in the nursing home and she can’t come out because her health isn’t that good so it’s going to be a very different day for me! Cherish all your loved ones cuz you never know how long they will be here. I wrote this poem. I hope you all have Happy Holidays! Thank you for reading my blog!

There will be one

Less chair

This year even

When there’s cheer!

It won’t be the same

Without you!

It will never be the

Same again!

We will try and go on

Without you!

But it will be blue

No matter what we do!

We all miss you so

Much!

And wish we could have

Just one more touch

With you!

My sweet dad!

My dad

I’m very sorry to tell you but I’m dad passed away on October 13th! I miss him everyday and it’s very hard. These past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride but I made it through. My mom is still hanging on she’s now in a nursing home and I go visit her just about every day! I’m so thankful that I got to spend a lot of time with my dad and my mom as I did. I miss him very much and I wrote this poem.

How do I say good bye

To a guy

Who has been with me my

Whole life?

The guy who helped me ride my bike

Drive a car for the first time

The guy who walked me into school

For the very first time

My dad

He’s gone now and it’s so hard

To understand it all

I got to try and get by

I love him so much and I

Wish I would of told him

More

Cuz now it’s to late to tell him

All the things I should of

He will live in my heart forever

My dad! ❤️💕

The Fall

I haven’t been on here much so I thought I would come on and tell you how things are going. I love the fall it’s my favorite time of year the air starts getting crisp and the leaves start changing! My mom is not doing to good. It’s a daily struggle to try and take care of her. It is a very challenging thing for sure but Iv been trying my very best. That’s all I can do right now. Please if you could say a short prayer for my family because it’s very hard. I appreciate it so much! Have a wonderful day and enjoy all you can ! 😊🌈

Sometimes

I wrote this poem. My days are filled with many emotions. My moms dementia is progressing very rapidly and it’s very hard to bare it all ! So writing helps me. I hope you like it and have a wonderful day! 😊

Sometimes I feel

Like my moms

Guardian angel!

I was sent here

To take care of her in

Her time of need!

I don’t have wings to fly!

But I’m there for her

Whenever!

She needs it

I wouldn’t want it any other way

I would do it all over again

And be my Mom’s

Guardian Angel 😇😊❤️🌈

Anniversary

My parents celebrated their 60th Anniversary yesterday. I’m so thankful for that they stayed together through everything. Some days are better than others but we do our best. It can be a challenge at times. I wrote this poem I hope you like it. Have a great day! 😊

It’s been 60 years

Since my parents said I do

They love each other and

Through it all

Their still together.

Even through the

Tough days!

I’m so thankful

For that!

They never gave up

No matter what came

Their way and to me

That is such a special gift

You could give

Someone that

You love.

One day

I haven’t been on here as Much as I would like. I have been very busy taking care of my mom. She is declining very fast and it’s not easy to watch. Everyday is a new day and a different challenge! I wrote this poem I hope you like it! Have a great day!

One day she will be gone

And I won’t be going

Anymore!

It will be so strange

I won’t know

What to do?

All this pain and struggle

Will just fade away

And I won’t have my mom anymore!

But she will be

At peace from all

This suffering!

All I can do is wait

For her final day!

And know I did my best

While taking

Care of her!

It won’t be easy

To say goodbye!

But it will

Be a end to

All this

DEMENTIA!

Caregiver

I wrote this poem I hope you like it. When your a caregiver you don’t really get much of a break. Everyday is about the same the disease has no Holidays or vacations it’s present everyday! You really never know how it is until you one day find yourself in the same situation! It helps to write and share my journey to help others who might be going through it too! Have a wonderful day! 😊

The life of a caregiver

Never stops!

It keeps going day by day!

You never really

Get a break!

Cuz

The people who depend on

You!

Need you to be there for

Them.

Every single day!

Sometimes it’s very hard and challenging

And other times are many blessings unseen

But you keep trudging

On and on

To the

Very end!

Birthday

Yesterday I was another year older. It was a good day even though my mom didn’t remember. But I will carry on and take each day as it comes. That’s all I can really do. These past few weeks it’s been kind a busy with my mom having physical therapy and occupational therapy but I hope it helps her some and strengthens her. My days are spent looking after her helping her do her daily routine. It doesn’t get easier but I find ways to cope and writing is one of them.

The weather is starting to get warmer out so I hope we can do some walking outside and enjoy the sunshine. Hopefully I will be getting a much needed break this weekend because my brother is coming. I’m going to take a day or two off and try to recharge cuz I’m getting low. But I wouldn’t want it any other way! I’m glad my parents are able to stay home and be together after almost 60 years. It might be a little inconvenient at times but it’s worth it. As what the future holds I’m not sure just taking one day at a time. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a wonderful day! 😊
