am your mother, father, husband, wife, brother, sister or friend
and I need your help.
I just don't know whatís happening to me --
or is it you?
You see, things just arenít right--
I canít seem to remember like I did -
or did you really tell me that?
Iím not sure how to get home anymore --
or have they changed the road?
I donít seem to love you like I did --
or do you not love me anymore?
I canít seem to be rational anymore --
or is this rational?
My personality just isnít what it used to be--
or do you have the bad attitude?
I canít feed myself anymore--
why does food keep falling?
My muscles wonít move like I want them too--
I just canít look in the mirror anymore --
I don't even look like the old me, do I?
Iím not sure whatís happening to me,
or is there really something happening?
Yes, there is something happening to me --
I have Alzheimers.
Please be patient and caring with me --
I may not realize whatís happening
and may even think itís you---
So I must put my life in your hands --
PLEASE GUARD IT WELL.
There will be a time you must have help in caring for me,
donít feel guilty, just love me, even though
Iíve become someone you donít know or might not even like.
