A granddaughter writes about her grandmother's experience with Alzheimer's Disease.

She May Not Remember Tomorrow

© Kate E. Cartwright
Every Morning
He helps her get up
Get ready for a day
That she may not remember tomorrow

Once a year
I walk in the door
Give her a hug
That she may not remember tomorrow

She goes outside
Picks berries on the farm
Feels like a hard worker
That she may not remember tomorrow

The neighbors come over
Trish and Tilly
Feels like Grandma
That she may not remember tomorrow

She goes to Terry's
For a home cooked dinner
Has laughs and entertainment
That she may not remember tomorrow

Being against a harmful disease
I thank the Lord
All of the time that I have with her knowing
She may not remember me tomorrow
