God Loves Me Though I'm Old

When I was young and vibrant I had so many friends - Some of them told me they'd be with 
me til the end - Now I'm old and feeble - My hair is full of gray - How I could use those 
friends right now as in my younger days - Some people call me senile because my mind 
comes and goes - I just wish somebody would care enough to show - That I am not forgotten 
and just love me like I am - I know the Lord still loves me and I'm His precious lamb - Some 
day soon when Jesus comes to take me home with Him - I'll wear a crown of righteousness 
embelished with fine gems - To God I have been faithful - He's always seen me through - 
That day I hope to hear Him say "My child I'm pleased with you - Enter into my presence 
come rest your weary bones - I promise you up here with Me you'll never be alone".

                                    Inspired by my mother Kathleen Thompson
                                           She's in the last stages of
                                                    Alzheimers.

The Lord put me inside her mind to write this.  I pray it helps others.

Nice ... and very empathetic ,loving (free verse..I believe?) My Father too had Alzheimers . That is a cross on everyone involved. You did your Mom a wonderful turn by writing this, for her and through her. God bless you and she. -Robert
