Moon Dust~ Thank you for taking time to read and reply, I really appreciate it.
This disease touches many people not just the ones that have it as you know, so my hope is that someday we find a cure...Paul

No one is immune to this terrible disease and your poem puts a face to it.  Well done Paul.   Joyce

Paul~

'As time passes each day she cries
wondering if she said goodbye
Still searching for her memories
she cries...without knowing why'


This one touches me so tenderly~

I do poetry readings/writings at area nursing homes ... and often see the saddness in 'faraway' eyes~

You handled this with a soft velvet touch of caring~

To lose control of ones mind is indeed a tragedy, a prison without a key.

Sadly, Paul~
and poignantly told~

Paul,
This is an incredible write that is a keeper in my book. I've seen this in my own family. One for the book for sure.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Hello Paul

Your words were so heartfelt and need to be heard.  I have written two poems now about Alzheimers disease and although I don't know anyone personally who is suffering I would imagine it to be absolutely soul destroying.  My vote has been cast and I hope you are well.

Take care......Sue

beautiful and touching poem about
a very hard subject. my grandma is
starting to suffer from this disease,
and it's so hard to watch. but i thank
you for putting a gentle and heart-
warming spin on it.

take care

This is an amazing piece, enormously touching, heartfelt and brought tears to my eyes.

Love reading all these great writes.
