All I Can Do

A smile stamped on your face,
fear stares from frightened eyes.
And you no longer shave,
cut by a trembling hand.
Yet as you shrink inside,
all I can do is weep.

Stripped of your dignity,
your head hangs low in shame.
Your identity’s gone,
only a shell remains.
And in spite of your pain,
all I can do is weep.

You’re lost within a maze, 
and cannot find your way.
For confusion stalks you,
stealing your fondest dreams.
And though I’m losing you,
all I can do is weep.

You die a bit each day,
dwindling into fragments.
And long hours are endured
silently in despair.
Yet cause it’s Alzheimer’s,
all I can do is weep.

    The disease is such a tragedy and it drags many families and loved one's down a horrific journey to an unfortunate end. A very well crafted piece on a hard subject...Tim
