An Alzheimer’s request


I understand it's difficult for you to see me going through this.
I understand you feel broken when I no longer recognize you.
But stay strong. Dont forget my love, though I forget you.

My body is here but my mind is lost.
I can hear your voice ,but can't recognize it.
I can see your face, but cannot identify you.
But don't forget my love, though I forget you.

My mind is taking me where I don't want to go.
I can't control it. It is slowing and will die.
I won't behave the same way I used to.
But don't forget my love, though I forget you.

I'm sorry for this burden I put on you.
But don't lose your patience with me .
Instead of cursing me pray for my betterment.
Please don't forget my love, though I forget you.

I want you to love me the way you used to.
I want you to kiss my forehead when I don't understand things.
I want you to treat me with respect.
Never ever forget my love, though I forget you...
