My patience is leaving, my hope has all gone, the day is darker with each new dawn. Its not Alzheimers but its much the same, if not myself then who is to blame? "Do you smoke?" they say, then "What do you weigh?" Is it a lifestyle thing? Have I used up my quota of delicious things? Healthy eating, exercise and fresh clean air, a little too late, it isn't fair. I'm a child of the 40s, we enjoyed what we had, who would have thought then that sugar was bad? We had chips for our dinner with sausage and gravy, but no TV then, we really weren't lazy. Ah yes, you say, the good old days, carefree and fun, before problems with memory had begun. But still, life can be sweet, with helpers and loved ones and people we meet. A new day is dawning, a fresh clean page, today I will try to gracefully age. Sorry, what did you say? Will that be tomorrow or when will it be, you know I am happy when you are with me.
