My Friend Has Alzheimer’s

Feelings Still Remain

I’ve watched my friend change, but remain the same.

Her feelings take control since her thoughts are now fragmented and lost.

She laughs when she’s happy.

She cries when she’s sad.

She becomes angry when she feels threatened.

She feels confused when her life does not make sense.

So, I laugh with her.

I cry with her.

I give her space when she needs it.

I reassure her when she feels out of place.

Though our time together has changed, the feelings of friendship remain the same.
