The forgotten

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

The moon is just the same

The sun it doesn't change 

The stars still come out and blink 

A happy, cheerful wink 


The trees they are still green 

The air they still do clean 

The birds still sing as sweet 

That cheerful morning greet 


The cars go driving by 

The planes zoom in the sky 

The children laugh and play 

The world's the same, moulded from clay 


Your body looks the same

But you don't answer to your name 

My face is just the same

But you forget my name


In your eyes a haze 

A fuzziness, a daze 

Confusion from your lips

The struggle to get to grips 


It's like your mould is broken 

And you are seeping out 

The sadness left unspoken 

As your memories fade out 


I'll smile and ill remind you 

of all you can't recall 

If cracks appear I'll be your glue

Your happiness above all

    My grandfather suffers from Alzheimer's as well. I wrote this poem for him:
    I'm glad to see other people showing some respect, and compassion, to those who suffer from Alzheimer's. Yours was better than mine, I think 🙂

      I would really love to read yours but the link is not working. What did you call it so I csn look it up? I'm sure yours is better....nothing better than a poem loaded with experience that comes from the heart. I don't know anyone personally that suffers from it so it's not from the heart and I think sometimes the poems not as strong as someone who really knows how it feels. Aw your wee sad. Horrible disease.
