As some may know, my husband has been ill for a
few years with a dementia. There are many feelings about his
dementia that I cannot fully explain. God has blessed us so much
and given us many treasured moments over the years and
especially blessed us the last few.
I think many caregivers find this poem speaks of
things they also feel. This was written one day while trying to
write a testimony about our journey so far, and this is simply
coming from my heart.
Will you remember?
Itís alright if you donít
Iíll remember for you.
Maybe I can remind you of precious moments
From the scrapbooks and albums of our lives.
Maybe I can help you recall a missing memory
Of treasured moments just like this
Maybe we can keep building those moments
Those memories that always seem to fade away
But in These moments maybe we can share the love
We have known all these years
Memories of family and friends
The home weíve built,
Laughs weíve shared
Work weíve done,
Loss and sorrow endured
Each well known chapter of our lives,
Retirement, with so many plans and dreams
So many things left undone
So much still to do
Maybe the moments will be fleeting that we recall
Maybe they will be bittersweet
Maybe we will only think of how blessed we are
And If we only know that, we are truly blessed
And if in each day we now share
We cherish each moment
The comfortable silence
The understanding of who we are and have been as
How blessed we are to have these moments
And if the time comes you canít recall these
moments we share today
Iíll remember for you.
Know that I will always treasure every moment
Every hug, every touch, every kiss,
Every look and words of love you send my way
The sound of your heartbeat when you hold me
When I lay my head on your shoulder and unwanted
tears and grief overwhelm
The difficult times and the frustrations that
These precious moments stand out like glistening
diamonds in the sun kissed snow.
Know that I will remember for you
And share these treasured moments with you
The sweet words and memories that you have given
me all these years
Your calm assurance to continue on with joy
In the moments we have
I am so blessed to remember with you and for you
Our enduring love filled memories
Memories that will be treasured for the rest of
Your gift of love to me, all these years
I love you.
