Alzheimer's is such a dreadful disease taking it's toll on many who must endure it. A true test of love

 True love


Busy in the waiting room

I observed an elderly gent

He passed about and viewed the time

I could see time not well spent


I beckoned him to the office of mine

Saying I notice you observe the time

Yes he said with sweet sad smile

At the rest home it’s tea time


Who is the one that waits for you?

Will they be upset if you are late?

No he said, five years she’s been

In her current state


Her mind is gone, she knows me not

But I remember her

The life we led the love we share

Hoping glimmers will occur


She is my love, my life you see

A promise I did take

From moments first wee tender kiss

Through rough times we dismissed

Our vows of love were made


She will always be my flower

My morning’s gentle breeze

The one I carried in sickness

And her the same to me


Not once will I ever leave her

Not here and after time

When God takes her to his kingdom

My Rose to all will shine


So you see my doctor friend

Tarry I should not

For every moments gift with her

Is one not wished for loss


She is my special Angel

I cherish her you see

Our love will be forever

Even not if she know me


He left my office slowly

You could see that he was tired

But tears did well up in my eyes

True love was never finer

It is good to know that "true" love is out there. Your poem and what it expresses are very compelling, moving, and meaningful, Carol. It is a terrible thing to lose someone when they are still physically in our presence. Thank you for sharing and awakening thought. Love and best wishes,

My brothers wife had this horrible illness, we watched her waste away and she no longer knew anyone. She passed away before my late husband. It took its toll on my brother, but he never left her side.

The most beautiful testament of Love Lady Lily, how exquisitely you write with one who knows it's true meaning.

I bow to you and our beauty and adeptness of knowing
