Alzheimers Train

Im taking the train to alzheimers, cause it aint taking me, I might wait forever for a drug to 
set me free.So remember family,when my mind is truly gone,To tell me tall stories to keep 
me well informed. remember mum when you were the queen of sheba,and you had hair of 
silk.and then i'll chuckle to myself and think you's have lost your mind.So tell me im 
important and ask me for advice.and even when i put you wrong smile and say im 
right.Cause now my mind is like a childs and i need some reassurance,and Alzheimers has 
stole the best of me and i dont have much endurance.But just remember while you can the 
good things in your life, cause once its stolen in the night its gone for good you see.

    Slightly humorous but the subject is a very serious one. It is losing a parent twice once to the disease and again to death. Sara

    It is so sad to see my mum like this now. when once she was so feisty and strong.
