1. “Fading Memories”
With every passing day,
Your memories seem to slip away,
The moments we shared, now blurry,
It’s harder to relive our story.
2. “A New Normal”
Our days are not the same,
The routine has changed its frame,
But we march on, side by side,
With hope, love and strength to guide.
3. “The Long Goodbye”
Each goodbye breaks my heart,
As I watch you slowly depart,
But I cherish every moment we share,
And try to show you how much I care.
4. “A Promise to Keep”
I promised to care for you,
Through thick and thin, all the way through,
And so I’ll hold your hand with love,
And stay steadfast, as we rise above.
Memories in the Wind
As I sit here by your side,
Watching as you slowly forget,
Memories fleeting like the tide,
My heart aches with regret.
I wish I could turn back time,
To when your mind was clear,
But now each day is a climb,
Through a fog that won’t disappear.
Still, I cling to precious moments,
Of laughter, love, and joy,
Even as the wind deters,
And steals them like a ploy.
So I’ll hold your hand and stay,
Through this journey unforeseen,
And cherish memories in the wind,
Of all that once has been.
Love in Every Moment
Caregiving isn’t easy,
I know that to be true,
But love can make it breezy,
No matter what you do.
Each day is a new challenge,
But love can light the way,
With patience, grace, and balance,
It helps through every sway.
The moments may be fleeting,
But love will always stay,
Through laughter and repeating,
It never fades away.
So hold tight to that love,
And all that it entails,
For it’s a blessing from above,
That never ever fails.
As I sit by your side,
Watching you drift away,
I can’t help but wonder,
What memories do you replay?
Do you remember your wedding day,
When you said “I do” with a smile?
Or the birth of your children,
And holding them close for a while?
What about the laughter,
Of family gathered for a feast?
Or the times you held hands,
On a sunset-warmed beach?
I wish I could know,
What you see in your mind,
As you slip away from me,
Leaving me behind.
But even if you forget,
What once brought you such joy,
You’ll always know one thing,
That love is never destroyed.
So I’ll stay by your side,
Until your remembering is done,
And hold your hand tightly,
Until your final setting sun.
Until We Meet Again
Days come and go, the sun and moon dance
But time is a thief, it steals a precious chance
My heart is heavy, my mind is in pain
The little things we had, all seem in vain
Your eyes might not recognize me anymore
But your soul still echoes in every core
The memories we shared, the love we created
Is a bond that can never be faded
You used to guide me, now I lead the way
I hold your hand, I tell you it’s okay
I’m your caregiver, your friend, your support
I’ll be by your side through every report
The highs and lows we’ve gone through together
All the stories we still remember
How you raised me, how you held my hand
It’s my turn to hold you, to help you withstand
The truth is, I’m scared to lose you
But I know you’re scared too
I do my best to hide my fears
And help you forget your tears
I try to bring a smile on your face
With silly jokes and warm embrace
I sing with you, I dance with you
I cherish every moment that’s new
The world might change, but I won’t
I’ll love you the same as I have before
You may forget my name or my face
But I’ll remind you of our happy place
The love we have is beyond Alzheimer’s disease
It’s the kind that a caregiver like me needs
Until we meet again, my sweet dear
I’ll be here for you, I’ll always be near.
