MOONLIT NIGHT WITH MY LOVE

The moon was bright as ever, I took my husband’s hand, I led him to the park, and we
stopped to play in the sand.

Long his memory faded, like a child was he, I watched as in wonder, he stopped and laughed
at me.

I took his hand once more and took him on our way, but he began to shout, he wanted to
stay and play.

I told him that I loved him; he said he loved me too, and in that tiny moment, I felt him
shining through. 

Once again it faded, and once again gone, I took his hand, my husband, and led him back home.

The Alzheimer’s he experienced was eating at his mind, but nothing in this world, could
force me to resign.

    Sena this is a very heartening write, my Grandfather had Alzhiemer's towards the end of his life. It was a sad turn of events for our family. I know that it is true love and devotion your father shares with his wife. I thank you for sharing such a moving read God Bless, always, Adell

    For any who read this poem, I do want to clarify that my husband in real life does not suffer from Alzheimer's disease, however, my stepmother does, and I see the devotion my father puts into her care. Therefore, it led me to thoughts on how I would feel if my beloved partner in life ever got this dreaded disease and this poem was born! Regards, Sena

    It's a very hard illness. It takes some so young. There is some meds now that help to slow the progression thank God for them. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
