Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
Michelle Cleary, Ivy Cawley, Laura Chisholm, Mary MacLeod, Leah MacDonnell and Laura MacArthur
I had two mothers..
Two mothers I claim
Two different people…
Yet with the same name
Two separate women…
Diverse by design
But I loved the both
Because they were both mine
The first was the mother
Who carried me here
Gave birth and nurtured and
Launched my career
She was the who features I bear.
Complete with the facial expression I wear.
She gave me some music which follows me yet .
Along with examples in the life that she set:
Then as I got older she some younger grew.
And we’d laugh as just mothers and daughters do.
As quickly she changed and turned to the other
A stranger who dressed in the clothes of my mother
Oh she looked the same at least at arms length
But she was the child now and I was her strength
We’d come full circle we women three:
My mother the first, the second and me
And if my own children should come to a day
When a new mother comes and the old goes away
I’d ask of them nothing that I didn’t do
Love both of your mothers as both have loved you
