Bittersweet Time for Lovers...

sunrise-1239728_640Why do I still think that our love and good times are never going to end?

Here I sit as she lies in the next room where she is slowly leaving me. So many sunrises have come and gone since we started traveling this complicated road of Alzheimer’s together. We have shared the secrets of our soul and I can’t think of any bad times we went through during the earlier good years. Now, today I am learning that with love come responsibility and the necessity to be strong as I carry the load for the two of us.

We have come to call this our final honeymoon for many special reasons. I live in dread of the morning she wakes up and doesn’t know my name or recognize me lying next to her. Our mutual path towards a final exit is bittersweet.

And still I wouldn’t be anywhere else -- this is where I belong and we will travel this path together as much as possible.
