Hello in there – You seem not to hear –
Your countenance has changed so much –
Those baby blues seem vacant
Though I search them looking for you –
You look back at times – or do I imagine so –
Telling me you love me –
And you know I love you too –
Hello in there – I’m still waiting here –
A breath away from losing you
For a time – for a little time –
I won’t be afraid because I know
You’ll not slip away from me without
His call – Shall I regret –
Yes – I’ll grieve your absence here –
Alzheimer’s – you don’t have my man –
He’s where he’s always been –
Settled in his Savior’s care –
He’s still waiting there – taking a nap –
Snuggled in angels’ wings – wrapped in fervent prayer –
Cradled in the arms of Jesus –
Lingering a while longer with me –

Hebrews 13:5 – The Bible (KJV) – Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
I have no reason to believe that my hubby is about to leave me to be with Jesus. I have no assurance that he will stay here longer either. One day he seems strong and healthy; the next he seems weak and distant. I’m not ready to let him go. I’m thankful he’s here with me.
I’m getting better at being a 24-hour caregiver. I still have lots to learn, and I make mistakes.
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. Blessings to you all.
