Subject: RE: BS: Oldimer's Disease
It occurred to me once that there has to be a really heartbreaking phase of Alzheimer's, when the person is aware there is something wrong but cannot imagine why everyone she/he loved has abandoned her so I wrote this song: I remember I once had a family And I know that I was happy then For I can see their bright little faces But I don't know where- or when.

Memories lost in the mists of time I don't know much anymore The years, the days, the hours all run together Memories lost in the mists of time.

Yesterday- or was it just this morning? They gathered 'round my rocking chair I recall the scent of many candles But I knew nobody there.
