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! ☹️

Winter

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!

Goodbye for now

I wrote this poem. My Aunt Bev passed away last Saturday! My mom’s older sister. I was pretty close to her all my life and loved her very much! I hope you like it cuz it helps me to write and share my feelings! It’s been a hard week ! Have a great day and a wonderful Holiday ! 😀🌈

I’m sorry I didn’t

Get to say goodbye

To you!

But I love you so much

I wish I could feel your

Sweet touch again!

You were always there for me so I’m glad

Your free from all of that disease

You taught me a lot all through

My life!

When I was a little kid you took me

To church and told me about Jesus!

We had so many laughs and some tears

All through these years!

You were the best

Aunt anyone could ever want or

Ask for and I know we will meet

Again but for now I just want

To say goodbye

My sweet

Aunt Bev!😊❤️

Only you

I wrote this poem quite a while ago but I thought I would share it with you! Have a lovely day! 😊

Only you

Know what’s going

To happen on a

Another day!

Only you know

What we think

Even before we do!

You put those

Words in our hearts

Only you can see inside

Of us!

Only you can do that!

To show us the way

To go!

Only you can

Do that

For us!
