when i look in to your dark round eyes,
you seem so distant, your persona is now a disguise.
For someone who was once so full of lifes existence.
Now all thats left of you is your remote eerily distance.
Its despairing how much you have changed today.
you are still here in flesh but it feels like your souls passed away.
There will never be an escape from this, it will be here until the end.
Its sad but its true, this is a disease that will never mend.
for a long time you had been quite content, your words where muddled but you always
Theres none of that now as you have become even more of a child.
Its disturbing to watch this alzheimer's slowly destroying your mind,
especially for a woman who had a spirit that always shined.
Its easier to be remembered for the person you where before,
but someday this will all be over for you and you won't have to suffer from it anymore.
