Say You Love me again is dedicated to my Mom and her blue-eyed cowboy (my stepfather).
Say You Love me again is dedicated to my Mom and her blue-eyed cowboy (my stepfather). He left her
with Alzheimer's disease long before he passed away. ( through my moms' eyes) Now My Mother is going through the same thing

Say You Love Me Again

I look into your blue eyes searching:
those same eyes that once held all of my
dreams and our future, now only reflect
your confusion.

I see the brief flickers of fear and I
recognize the glimmers of hope. There
are moments as quick as a firefly's blink
where you remember.

Then as fast as it appears it is gone
again, leaving me hanging, waiting
for the next time hoping it will
last longer.

Your eyes search mine for answers
to questions too soon forgotten, which
adds to your frustration and slowly
destroying what is left of us.

As I watch, you pull yourself deeper
into yourself and I sit and watch
as you leave me over and
over again.

I long for you to reach out
and tenderly touch my hand,
just like you use to do. I miss
your warm touch.

I cannot remember anymore the
sound of your laughter. I miss you.
Just one more time, before you
completely go away, please...
