My heart is breaking a little each day-
What should I do, what should I say?
This Alzheimers disease does not just belong to you-
I’m in there with you in all that we do.
Fighting for your life with each new task-
Each task that is slipping away from you so fast.
I don’t know why you argue with me-
I’m just trying to please you – but that is not what you see!
Trying to do what is right & best for you-
But you challenge me & the doctor too!
I love you but I don’t want to admit that I care-
It just hurts all the more- sometimes more than I can bare.
What should I do – I’m probably not myself-
Trying to be strong, putting my feelings on the shelf.
I can’t imagine what life is like for you-
Finding it hard to comprehend all that we do.
Help us Lord, please send us your strength-
We desperately need you each day – length by length.
