His Promise

Rays of sunshine
hold tomorrows
an open paragraph
to life’s journey

A silent heart ..
ones rainbow ending
faith reveals and
covenant enfolds

Clutched within a
priceless promise
His opened hand
reveals true love

Hope (There is Love)

From a distance
down the hall
a sense of joy?
her heart feeling
familiarity
a glow
getting warmer…

Rays of happiness
feed the daisies
garden of hope
flourishes
with a visit
from a friend
her daughter

Refined Rainbows

Amble down
the cobblestones
patterns change
my every step
colours blend with
cold grey stone
crumbling beneath
worn shoes

Pigments mixed
between the cracks
confuse the artist
of the canvas
portrait of the
life now shades
under tones
of sadness

Never change
the canvas
for in it
lies their soul
mix the colours
blend the hues
with fashion
refined rainbows

Love Prevails

 

 

Crevices deep within the heart
hold the truest love
a vein of gold the band that holds
around her tiny finger

Worn from years of constant labor
his hand still bears the ring
symbol of infinite affection
constant reminder of true love

Endure through blinding walls of hail
the winds try hard to break the course
love remains their bond of strength
through dementia love prevails

We face many challenges in this life. For richer or poor, in sickness in health…

My parents have faced a lot of uphill climbs throughout their years of dedicated love together.

This recent mountain seems so very steep rugged and sometimes out of reach of the victory at the top of the climb; but today was a “VICTORY’ stop, a rest on their way to the top.
Today my dearest daddy visited his loving wife in her new home Rockwood. Love holds no bounds, even through dementia love was visible.

There are more challenges to face but together as a family our love creates a bond that seems to give strength and courage when you feel you have none left.

Please continue to hold my parents in your thoughts and remember to whisper their names in your prayers.

God Bless
Thank you

Miracle Of Time

Miracle Of Time

Refreshing
heaven winding
through lungs to heart
I drift upon
lofty heights
through day
shadows fold

A moment
there is time
it lives
it rushes on
celebration
the chance to think
reacting within a miracle

Golden field
heavily laden
grasses forbade
my entry
beauty lies
with in its maze
anxious
for the journey

Fingers find their way
to stem
to pluck
a brilliant rose
crimson coat
swaddles bloom
protected
by the thorn

Losing Yesterdays & Maybe Tomorrows

IMG_4298

Life so full of ordinary
creating brilliant priorities
now lays dormant
awaiting resurrection

Memories, define please-!
so many yesterdays with
no thoughts of tomorrow
uncertainty not voiced

Simplicity of happiness
redeemed by her smile
a visit an unexpected call
from whom? cannot recall

Portraits of familiarity
now dimmed by guesses
forgetting to inquire
just who they are

Losing her yesterdays
and maybe tomorrows
In need of guidance
love and strength

Dementia is the worlds next epidemic, a silent killer
that quietly, little by little steals our loved ones life, memory
and ability to truly identify and express their thoughts. We need to raise awareness,
educate and offer support.
