The Alzheimer’s way

by sschubert

Copyright ©2012 Stephanie R Schubert

I’m sorry she said
I don’t write anymore
I am nothing like I was before

I don’t know how to reminisce
I am sorry she said
I don’t know you anymore

All that once was
Has been lost

Just living today
The Alzheimer’s way

Nothing to remember
No appointments to keep
Just wake up
And see what the day brings

People who say they know me
Like I am just supposed to take their word
About who I am
Or whoever
they think
I might be

Now be a dear
whoever you are
And hand me my pills
