Early Onset Alzheimers

No sleep tonight
my dreams upset my mind
it's all about
losing thoughts to time

It's like I was never young
nor hearty, nor hale
like disabilities came early
and wiped my memory clear

Now I worry
what will happen
when my thoughts are no longer honed
I'll just lie there, lost...depressed...alone
