Going Home




Going Home


Alzheimer’s held an ugly grip

Upon the last days of his life

A loving man for many years

No longer knew his wife


Silent tears were many

As I watched him disappear

No longer the daddy I knew

His eyes held confusion and fear.


“I have to go home, will you take me?”

“If only I could,” were my thoughts.

How I longed to bring back the memories

Of the children and wife he had lost.


Gone were the memories of family

Gone were the days of such joy

Helpless I watched him regressing

From a daddy to little boy.


Yet there remained a sweetness

For in his big heart was the Lord

Drawing all close to his bedside

Eyes sparkled as once before.


“I know I’m going to see Jesus,

He’s waiting there now for me.

When I finally get there,

From all pain He’ll set me free.”


Smiling I held his hand gently

As angels ushered him home

No longer the fear and confusion

Now he knows as he’s known.

Written in loving memory of

my beloved Dad.



Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears

from their eyes; and there shall

be no more death, neither sorrow,

nor crying, neither shall there be

anymore pain: for the former things

are passed away
