This is for my mom, who is suffering from Alzheimer



Mama

I have lost my mom
Although she's still alive
The strong woman she was
That's all in the past

Her eyes lost their shine
Her face lost her smile
Anger and grief took over
And also a lot of tears

Why is she suffering that much?
She was beautiful, loving
She was tender and caring
Like every mother is

In good and bad times
Mama was always there
She used to dry my tears
When I was in pain
She taught me to love
Respect and so much more
That's in the past, I can't ignore

An illness took my mom
It took her personality
It's slowly growing inside her brain
It's hard to see her suffer
Suffer with that much pain

Mom I can only enjoy
The times that are given us
Times when you know who I am
Times when I still see you smile
Times to hold you for a wile

Mom I love you
I always will
I raise my children
With the same love
That you gave to me
