That You Remember Me: An Alzheimer’s Poem

Written by on September 14, 2013 with 0 Comments


“My mind has ways of taking me

where I don’t want to go.

I know I know your name, you see;

but just right now it’s hard for me

to think of things I really know

and to know what really is

and what may not be so . . .


“Though I may forget you,

it’s important that you see

just how much it means to me

that you remember me.”


That You Remember Me


This is one of the first picture poems that we created.  We are dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease in our family, as are many other families.  In early stages, there must be moments when the afflicted person fears that others will forget him or her. It is such a sad and overwhelming condition.

Available for purchase in 20 x 16 size, black or dark brown matte, with rectangular photograph opening. Gold or White matte will be used around the photograph opening.  A second rectangular photograph opening can be added, to allow a family photo to be included, or another special photograph.

$279.99 for one rectangular double matte opening.  Add $30.00 for a second rectangular double matte opening.

Shipping, handling and sales tax, if applicable, are extra.

Personalization (Name(s) (plural, if family included in photograph) included at no extra cost. If there is something else you would like added, feel free to ask.  Contact me with personalization details.

By the way, if the words in the photograph look blurry, it’s not your eyes or your mind:  it’s the photograph.  I need to re-shoot this one!
