(Alzheimer's disease) Life Goes On

This was written a few days after Don passed away. Some friends, family and acquaintances did not understand that with Alzheimer's disease and any chronic disease where you are a care giver, the grieving process is different from normal. I felt very little after Don's passing because I had been grieving over the years with each loss.

Life Goes On

First his mind, then his body, now his soul is free.
I have no guilt; I was beside him.
I have cried but not today.
Life goes on
Feed the dog, comfort others,
Wash the dishes, make the bed.
Pay the bills, fix dinner.
I have mourned but not today.
Do not judge me.
Life goes on.
