An Alzheimer’s Poem

Don’t ask me to remember.
Don’t try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you are with me.
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I am confused beyond your concept.
I am sad and sick and lost.
Just know I need you with me at all costs.
Don’t lose your patience with me.
Don’t scold or curse my cry.
I can’t help the way I am acting.
I can’t be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you,
And the best of me is gone.
Please don’t fail to stand beside me,
Just love me till my life is done.
