    Alzheimer poem

    You didn’t die just recently,
    You died some time ago.
    Although your body stayed a while,
    And didn’t really know.
    For you had got Alzheimer’s,
    You failed to comprehend.
    Your body went on living,
    But your mind had reached its end.
    So we’ve already said “Goodbye”,
    To the person that we knew.
    The person that we truly loved,
    The person that was “You”.
    And so we meet again today,
    To toast your body’s end.
    For it was true and faithful,
    Until the very end.
    And so, when we remember
    We’ll think of all the rest.
    We’ll concentrate on earlier,
    And remember all the best.
    For in the larger scheme of things,
    Your illness wasn’t long.
    Compared to all the happiness
    You brought your whole life long.
    We think of you as yesterday
    When you were fit and well.
    And when we’re asked about you,
    It’s those things that we’ll tell.
    And so we meet in memory,
    Of a mind so fit and true.
    We’re here to pay our last respect,
    To say that “we love you”.

    It makes me cry too. Which is why I will have the pastor read it at the service.
