Poem – Floating Words

  Problems understanding spoken sentences (verbal comprehension):

Floating Words

© Truthful Kindness 2018 Dec 11

Words float around and past me.

sometimes they splash against my body.

i hear them spoken.
i understand each word.

I reach for them,
but mostly they just float around me without joining;
without coalescing into concepts that i can grab, hold, and understand.

Sometimes i am able to grab a passing thought and hold it;
finally understanding,
responding to the speaker and building relationship …
… but then it is gone again.

Words float around and past me.

Sometimes i feel alone
… and require visuals or TOUCH.

Join Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio for a Great Conversation

Click Below to Listen

Lori La Bey, host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio will talk with Jael Weinberg, an Art Therapist who incorporates the creative process in many forms into her therapeutic work with residents at Aegis Living’s all memory care community, Callahan House. Today we will learn what art therapy is, how it is different from the typical arts and crafts most of us do and what the benefits are from art therapy.

I think you will learn a few new things Like I did that might just change your perception of art used as a form of therapy.

Poem Regarding Dementia: Time Lost

Time Lost

Another Beautiful Poem

Submitted By A Community Member

Time Lost

By Sandy Cannon

A crestfallen look beholds her face

The life of her mind now wrapped up in lace

Bright smiles once captured are now fleeting and few

Her indifference grows stronger, as her prayers fill the pew

Words once spoken fall silent from her lips

Her captor steals her thoughts and robs her of bliss

A world yet to travel with opportunities so vast

Is held hostage by her mind and are now dreams of the past

Loved ones are devoted and keep vigil for her care

Unable to arrest this disease that so dares

Dares to be bold, dares to be brash

And forces us to mourn our loss before the ash

We take solace in knowing that her fear will surrender

To a place deep inside, that she will no longer remember

Let’s find a cure….

My name is Sandy Cannon and I live in St. Louis, MO.  My mother passed away in December, 2017, from dementia.  I am a volunteer for AFTD (The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration).  I also work with the Alzheimer’s Association in St. Louis.  

Thank you  Sandy for sharing you poem with all of us!
