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.
