“Destiny befalls me”

Destiny adjudged that I should fall victim unto,

Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Parkinson’s disease,


You may disorder and bewilder my brain,

You may take from me of my memories,

You may physically diminish my body,

You may unsettle daily at my equilibrium,

You may cause me macabre of the night,

You may garble and cause me assonance of speech,

You may thrust all your adversities against me,




You will never take away my innermost spirit,

You will never take my ever thirsty yearning for life,

You will never take my endless love for my darling wife…
