Remember The Days
by Alex Karahalios

Oh honey remember those days you and I had at the park going on the swing sets
Remember those days we had when we would talk laugh smile and cry
Remember our first date together it was near the beach on a cold autumn’s night
I placed my coat over you to keep you warm and to protect you
Remember our first kiss together it was on a cold winter's night it was magical


My life faded when the doctor told you and I that Alzheimer's disease took over your life
I cry at the thought of you not remembering the life we had together
You don’t even remember my name or the ring I gave you at our wedding day

Begging the dark to sing me a lullaby,
To soothe and comfort me,
For I might not open my eyes again,
For the dark might have to become my home.

The Infinity Mirror
Reminiscent of a dream:

Oh Little Plane
by Alex Karahalios

Oh little plane how magnificent you are
The places you take people are just so wondrous
I just love seeing you fly by everyday
The mysteries you give me are frightening



Oh little plane why didn’t you come today
Were you sick or did I not come outside soon enough
I look at the TV to find out that you crashed on two towers
