Description
I spent the first part of the summer with my mother in law and her family. She has alzheimer. This is what I came up with to explain and honor Rebecca and her mother.

Lyrics
You are Up stairs with your mother
Stroking her hair
Daddy is back in her head
Daddy is back in her head

Her heart is full of memories
That Her head can not find
I'm afraid she'll be up all night
fuzzy ways have become her

The garden is taking over
The garden bares little fruit
I pack my bags tonight with you in mind

She said Take me out if this gets ugly
I love you till the end
She said I love you till the end
She said I love you till the end

What's the worst that could happen
In the time we have ahead
Boredom would be my answer
Too many things
Too many things left unsaid

The door is open
And the car is full of gas
This road was yours and now it is mine

I love you to the end
The world is filled with sticks and stones
I love you till the end
She said I love you till the end
She said I love you till the end
Pack your bags cause we are out of time
Don't be afraid to take chances
Don't be afraid to say what you are thinking
I will talk to you
You can talk to me
I love you till the end
I love you till the end

This is a very fine post. It addresses a difficult subject that many people are experiencing (our family included) and does it with empathy and a down to earth elegance that is very impressive. Wonderful vocal and an arrangement that really envelops and enhances the song. Quality song writing. Much kudos. Regards, Peter.

Wow
I lucked out and didn't have parents with Alzheimer's, at least that I knew about but both of my parents died early in their 70's while most of my friends parents lived to 80 or 90 +.

I remember when my mom died I got this call out of the blue from a girl I went to high school with and she was like "are you ok!?" I mean your parents are gone... I still have mine and I don't know what I'd do without them!"

It was then I realized I'd been living without my parents so to speak for close to 10 years by the time they died. My life was busy and I didn't have the time and I'll regret that forever.

My wife's step father has the big A and now a major stroke on top of it. He's pretty much gone. Tough to grow old these days.

Beautiful song. Beautifully done! Thanks for sharing.

Of when my mom died from Huntington's. I feel your pain and it's brave to do a song like this. Nice work!

Such a delicate song...
...describing such delicate thoughts that are filled with memory...and love. It is not possible to hear this song and not be filled with the tender care you put into writing and performing it. Just beautiful.
