"Friend, Mind wandering through misty woods. You don't understand your purpose. Friend, I knew you too little, Please do not shed your salty emotions, Not out of anger, not out of sadness. Friend, You now lose your way so easily, You sink, you burst, you burn inwardly. You weep from frustrations, From the guilt of an honest smile, From pains, that you forget for a moment, That come swiftly back to haunt you of your loss. I understand, dear friend. You once had a light and the woods seek to snuff it out. Do not fear, dear friend, Friend follow me, as I once did you. Friend, now you see? Yes, you see, The little wisps in the fog that guide us home." ~In memory of Bill Hamman, and all else who have suffered the pains of Alzheimer's
