This blog will be a place to post poetry written by people living with Alzheimer's disease. We will focus on poetry that is created as part of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project. We will post information and news about dementia. We hope this blog is of use to the family members who have a loved one with dementia.

MEMORIES by Anne Keane


It was a year ago,
or was it two,
that she first realized she forgot,
to remember:
Remember to remember,
she was going
to lose
as the first.

shortly ago then
She can't remember.

It is her nightly medicine
or is it the month.
Did she ask you? Or forget to ask, did you
Answer or not
it is no longer always clear,
Though it seems not important to hold
On to forgetting
To remember
at times the sky blue and the clarity,
in a moment.
