Time Will Tell

"Time will tell.."
Time has told...
I am getting way to old...

The sun is no longer brighter then the moon
I can't tell a fork from a spoon

I don't drive anymore I only sit and stare
I have to have total care

I used to speak when spoken to
I could react and know what to do

I used to tie my own shoe laces
I used to go places

I once worked on a job for many years
This disease was my worst fear

My mother and grandmother passed it on to me
I can't see what you see

I used to smell flowers and saw how very pretty they were
Now everything to me is one big blur

Family and friends ask me things and I can't reply
Only Our Lord and Savior knows why

For I know I am here with you all and I know that it's going to be okay
Just love and care for me each and every day

We will meet again this I know
When God calls me I have to go

I will tell the others I see that you said "hello and you will see them soon"
I pray for you my child that the sun stays brighter then the moon

Love Always

    Deeply sad but with depth of insight. I was caregiver for my parents, Dad stayed responsive, but Mom spoke for a short while with her eyes before the silence set in and her eyes finally dimmed. Love this !!

    Thank you Ms. Debra! Caring for them is such a Blessing. Though they are silent their characteristics remain.
