Alzheimer's poem

Do not ask me to remember

Don't try to make me understand.

Let me rest and know you're with me

Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

I'm confused beyond your concept

I am sad and sick and lost.

All I know is that I need you to be with me at all cost.

Do not lose your patience with me

Do not scold or curse or cry

I can't help the way I'm acting

Can't be different though I try.

Just remember that I need you,

That the best of me is gone.

Please don't fail to stand beside me; love me 'til my life is done.

(Owen Darnell)
