He doesn’t know her anymore
but she knows who he is.
Her husband, and her sweetheart
and father of their kids.

She made a humble vow to him
upon their wedding day
that she would love and cherish,
and honor come what may.

There is no greater test of love,
or greater lesson learned,
than that from she who gives such love
though it is not returned.

Alzheimer’s robbed his memory
and took him far away,
but all will be restored in full                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           on resurrection day.

Then, what heartfelt gratitude
that day will be expressed
by he who’s faithful sweetheart
passed love’s greatest test.
