Poem: My Dear, I Love You

Dear Mom, I Love You

My Dear, I Love You
by
Jerry Ham

From one who has Alzheimer’s, and yes it is hard
Just for a moment, let me share from my heart.
Please forgive me for the things that I say.
If I were well, I would not be this way.

Although I can’t tell you, I’m so glad you are here.
But I know you are hurting, cause I see your tears.
I wish I could tell you, what you mean to me.
Could we please go back to what used to be?
But no, we are here, and I’m a stranger it seems.
Though I might wish otherwise, it’s more than a dream.

Please, just remember, when I curse and yell,
it’s not really me that you see, just my shell.
In spite of the difficult days we’ll go through,
this one thing is true…my Dear…I love you.

Please leave your thoughts and comments

    Dear Mum

    Time has made us Strangers
    But you still remain my Mum
    I know you do not know me
    But I am Carl your Son.

    You gave me Life
    And Loved me much
    I miss your smile
    And warmth
    And touch.

    A lways remember that I am here by your side

    L eading you through darkness and fears you now hide

    Z ealed by my love for you

    H onoured to be your child

    E very passing sun and moon

    I dyllic memories run wild

    M y care and thoughts are with you

    E ach and every day

    R est assured Dear Mum

    S alvation’s on its way.

    Time has made us Strangers
    But you still remain my Mum
    I know you do not know me
    But I am Carl your Son.

    You gave me Life
    And Loved me much
    I miss your smile
    And warmth
    And touch.

    To my dear Mum, Maggie xxx
