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! 😊

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

Left!

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! 😊❤️

Memories

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

Dementia!

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!

Why?

I want my mom back

You dumb old dementia

You have stole her away

From me! ☹️
