Alzheimers

On a wing and a prayer, she prayed for her farewell
as her restless spirit soared through time — no one can tell
Her journey ‘long life’s breeze like a spinning carousel
with emotions, riding high – is what she did dispel

Head, planted in dream clouds – her heart filled with wonder
she aspired to daring heights, where others dare not ponder
Poised between fantasy and reality, never knowing where
she simply closed her eyes and found her footing there

 

And like her restless spirit, she pined – searching for truth
A quest for new dimensions, that spoke of knowledge and youth

Her journey ‘long life’s breeze like a spinning carousel
with emotions, riding high – is what she did dispel

Head, planted in dream clouds – her heart filled with wonder
she aspired to daring heights, where others dare not ponder

Poised between fantasy and reality, never knowing where
she simply closed her eyes and found her footing there

And like her restless spirit, she pined – searching for truth
A quest for new dimensions, that spoke of knowledge and youth

If only she could break invisible chains that bond her soul
she knew she’d find her era that she’d misplaced long ago

So now she fades to sleep, entering lost dreams
Her importance in life, as too, it may seem

She recounts forgotten visuals that for a moment, pure and true
Lacking words she cannot find that now have lost their value

Such brilliant minds, displaced in time – as others come to see
the sorrowful disposition that reminds you and me
of Alzheimers
