I see the sadness in your eyes,
The times that you are knowing
What's happening to your wondrous mind,
The symptoms you are showing.
Poems about Growing Old
Aging is a natural process of life. It begins the moment we are born. Strangely enough, most of us live under the illusion that we and our loved ones will never become old. When old age arrives, we are often unprepared. The natural order becomes reversed. The young help to care for the old. Those who need to be taken care of for the first time have a hard time accepting that they need help. This condition is a product of our culture that does everything it can to conceal the loss of youth. Confronting this reality is the beginning of a healthy relationship to life, aging and death.

Inspirational Poem About Alzheimer's
Nancy Reagan once said: "Alzheimer's is just another word for a long goodbye" Doctor's told us that Alzheimer's is a horrible disease that strips you of your dignity and pride. Nurses told us that some go back to their childhood and some act like they're five. And we have all said: "We love her so much" but she has changed, she's just not the same.
You see the doctors were wrong, you could never take away our mother's dignity or pride. Did she loose her dignity by asking us to bathe her, dress her, love and care for her? I say no, because she did all those things and more for us.
