Maybe You Remember Me? Alzheimer’s Poem

I’m sure by now you’ve all read my poem ‘I Think I Forgot’ the poem I wrote about my Grandfather and his Alzheimer’s if you haven’t please click here.

Here’s another poem I wrote about him and his Alzheimer’s. 

I think spending so much time with him allows me far too much time for reflection and maybe that isn’t always a good thing. 

I’m terrified of my Grandad dying he’s been such a massive influence in my life and I really don’t know what I’d do without him in my life.

It’s a thought that plagues me daily. Each day I see him he’s deteriorated that little bit more and it’s so terribly sad to see. 

Anyway without further ado here’s  the poem entitled ‘Maybe You Remember Me’ 

I’ve always wondered what I’d say when we said our last goodbye
I’ve always wondered how long it’d be before I would start to cry
I think I wonder far too much because now you fill me sadness
And since in fact you are still alive it’s all just complete madness
Except of course you aren’t alive well not as you once were
The man that raised me has gone; he’s simply no longer there
Now replaced by a shadow of the great man you used to be
Does the smile on your face mean that maybe, 
just maybe you remember me?
