Fade Away…

Faint
Awareness
Diminishing
Each day
All memories
Woven of love
Abandon me as
You call me back

I’ve tried to visualize from a different point of view. A person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, suffers the most painful death perhaps. To spend those last moments with the memory of your loved ones and your favorite moments fading away, its the saddest death. My heart goes out to such people. 

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. This was just so heart-warming!Beautiful…I mean, its kinda making me think about our future and what awaits us in the end..but my heart, right now going out to many who share the pain..Written well but conveyed the message, even better!Keep writing..:)

  2. My grandmother passed away almost 3 years ago (September 14th, 2006) to the day that you posted this. She succumbed, finally, to Alzheimers. However, the hard part was watching her drift away slowly. We mourned her for years before her death, at least I did. This was very touching and very well done. Thank you.
