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!


The people who depend on


Need you to be there for


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!

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! 😊

The Mother I once knew

My days are spent taking care for my mom. I don’t regret it at all I wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s just heartbreaking to take it all in but I do my best. It helps to write and share with all of you. I wrote this poem and I hope you like it. Have a wonderful day! 😊

The mother I once knew

Is gone!

Far away away

She has dementia

And has become like

Someone I don’t even know!

It’s hard and all I can do is

Hold back the tears cuz all

Those years are gone!

Long gone!

There’s nothing I can do just

Keep holding on

To what is left

But there’s not much!

Of it

Train of life

Happy Easter Everyone! I wrote this poem and I hope you like it! Enjoy this weekend with your family!

We are all on

The train of life

And strife.

We don’t know what direction

To take!

But we keep on going and going!

We never stop we just keep moving!

Straight ahead without even giving

You one thought. Our creator the one

That has given us life!

Then all of a sudden something happens

In our life and we find ourselves asking

You to help us make it through

After all this time you were right there

Watching and waiting for us to

Give it to you!

And believe that you love us and will

Take care of us

Always and

Forever! 😊❤️

I haven’t been on I’ve been very busy with both of my parents. But I wouldn’t trade this time I have spent with them for nothing! Some days are very hard but I get through them. It helps me to write. I wrote this poem. Have a great day! 😊

All those memories a

Distant past

All those dreams shattered

All those thoughts gone

Away far away!

But where did they go?

I do not know?

I wish I did.

My mom the person

I love so dearly is

Gone far away!

And I can’t get her back

No matter how hard I try!

I cry tears of sadness

Cuz the lady who I love

Is gone!

Some days she doesn’t know

Who I am!

And it breaks my heart

Into a million

Tiny pieces

But it’s not her fault

It’s just this

Dumb dumb

Where ?

I wrote this poem I hope you like it! It helps to write and share. My mom has dementia and it’s getting worse and it’s really hard some days! 🌈

Where did she go?

This mother I once knew?

Everyday she’s falling away through

The cracks more and more!

It’s so hard to watch all you can do

Is grin and bare it!

You wonder why this has happened?

Her memory a distant past!

The love you have for her is so strong

It helps you to go on

But it’s so unfair!

That you care so much!

It hurts!

It hurts!


I want my mom back

You dumb old dementia

You have stole her away

From me! ☹️

I wrote this poem! I hope you like it. Have a wonderful day! Stay warm! ❄️❄️❄️☃️⛄️

The cold wind is

Blowing through

The trees.

The snow is glistening

And it looks like bright diamonds!

On the ground the snow is white and

It keeps coming down in the window

Where I sit!

It’s bitter cold outsides day I’m trying

Everything to keep warm!

It’s just another wintry day in

New York! Bet you wish

You were here too !? ❄️❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️❄️👍❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️☃️❄️☃️

Blog Reflection

I’m so sorry I haven’t been on here to much! It’s been pretty crazy around here. My dad went into the hospital last week for a upper respiratory infection so I had to stay with my mom for about 4 days. It’s a challenge for sure. Her dementia is gettin worse and she’s more and more and more and more like a kid. It’s very heart breaking!

She has declined very rapidly it seems. Every day is a new adventure and challenge. I am thankful I can be there for them even though sometimes it’s very stressful. For anyone that has family or friends with this my heart goes out to you. It is a very terrible disease this dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. I hope to be on here more as time goes by. Right now the most important thing for me is taking care of my parents! I hope you are all doing well and I get a chance sometime to read your blogs! That’s all for now Take Care!
