Alzheimer's Prayer
8/3/2015 0 Comments
 
Dear Lord, they say I'm ill and that's why I can't remember.  Help me always to feel, that I'm always held safe in your heart.  I just want people to be kind.  I want to belong somewhere safe.  I want to be treated with respect.  I want slowness and time for everything.  I want people to look at me in the eye, sitting right next to me and an arm around my shoulder as if they cared about me.  I hope you can help me find the love I need.  If you can't send my mother or father to me, please send me someone just like them.  Someone who will love me exactly as I am.  Because, you know lord, I would remember if I could.  I would do things right if I just remember how.  I would be that person that I once was.  I would, but, now I can't.  Please walk with me all the way so I can find my way home at last.
