Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s

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 Altzheimer’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 bodies end.
For it was true and faithful,
Until right at the 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 real 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 ‘membrance,
Of a mind so fit and true.
We’re here to pay our last respects
To say that, “We love you”.
