Memories Taken

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

Memories Taken Memories taken from the story of our lives Confusion blocks them from time to time I hear you breathing trying so hard to survive Fighting not to surrender what Alzheimer’s left behind I see your fragile body before me Your eyes looking so sad over to my way A weakened soul trying so hard to be set free From what this disease has already taken away I see your tears searching for a trace of happiness I dry them in the hope that a smile replaces your sorrow Inside there’s a sense of emptiness Knowing that you might not be with me tomorrow All the memories of us then would be taken To be carried with you up to heaven’s window For God would make sure that our love would not be forsaken From the day I have to let you go… Contest: Taken Sponsor: Black Eyed Susan
