Alzheimer’s is stealing my mother’s soul away
Day by day her personality evaporates
Her soul is stifled by plaque
Zombie with blank eyes
Her quirks are disappearing but her body goes on
I miss her antics, always looking for a reason to laugh
Twinkle in the eye
A heart attack would have been easier, sadly
Boom. She would make the transition
Instead, she has had to suffer through fear and anger of a minuscule enemy
No army can win a war against it
Its tiny prongs twist away her memories
At least she can still smile
But it makes me cry

Increase Alzheimer Research Money!
