Alzheimer's Poem



                                     By Linda Straub

I was on my way home
and saw you running
across the road,
hands on your head,
tears streaming
down your face,
and I knew
she had walked away,
into the heart
of her familiar
yet foreign world.
Together, we combed
the neighborhood
until day faded into night.
Suddenly, there she was,
standing on the corner,
unafraid and unaware,
under the street lamp's
amber, artificial light,
coat collar turned up,
grey hair blowing
in the evening breeze,
found, yet forever lost.
