Living With Alzheimer's

Locks on the doors, Locks on the screens,
Soon locking the pantry, Keep the keys unseen.

Maintaining the peace, Preventing a fight,
Thinking ahead so he can't take flight.

Keeping him safe is the primary goal.
Regularly missing what Alzheimer's stole.

Stress is a constant companion these days.
Finding moments of peace in small, fleeting ways.

Hearing him laugh or seeing him smile,
Makes long days better at least for a while.

But the day is soon coming that we'll all have to face.
Moving him out to a different place.

Until that day comes, we strive for safety and ease.
I hate Alzheimer's. I hate this disease.
