Alzheimer Eyes

By Jo Ludwig

Look deep in my eyes
I can speak to you there
Can you hear my deep cry
Can you sense the despair

I know this is the end
And it’s okay with me
But your momma’s not ready
She won’t listen you see

This disease is now winning
I am ready to go
And spend life with my Jesus
Where we all want to go

Could you help her get ready
So I can say my goodbyes
And go live up in heaven
In the eternal skies

I am ready to leave
There’s nothing left here for me
I no longer think, hear or smell
Nor do I see

I feel your touch but it’s foreign to me
I hate being dumb
It is not who I am
I’m scared and quite lonely in this shell of a man

My soul is prepared
God helped me to see
Can we move on with God’s plan
I am ready to be free

Yes I know where it’s going
I am ready, she’s not
So please look in my eyes
Please try reading my thoughts

Just look deep in my eyes
I will speak to you there
Let me go to God’s home
Where I’ll wait for you there.
