Alzheimer's song

Posted Jul 25 2012 6:34pm
Someone sent me this video of a song about Alzheimer's.

Hi Bert, I saw your 'Alzheimer's Dad' site. I'm a musician &; we recently completed an Alzheimer's-themed Music Video in Oregon. It's called 'The Forgotten Man' & is dedicated to my grandparents, Stan & Alma & others afflicted with the disease. Stan became 'The Forgotten Man' once Alzheimer's took hold of his wife. If this video & song can serve a purpose for anyone, please feel free to post or share. The link & lyrics are below. Thank-you for your time, Pennan. (sorry for the long lyrics...)

'The Forgotten Man' by Pennan Brae
It’s another rainy night In this cold shore-lined town Water beads down my window Dies without a sound
Leaves fly through the sky Trees dance back and forth Winds announce their presence Howling from the North
Sit here silently Watch the scene unfold Grown man weeps utterly Can’t believe what he’s told
His girl of fifty years Can’t recall his name Eyes the storm outside Feels the anger feels the pain
If you don’t mind Just sit low Tell you a story You’ll want to know ‘Bout the old man Whose love forgot about him
He was an old man He didn’t understand What happened to the woman Whose life he gave What happened to the woman Who forgot his name
Thunder softly speaks Past the lightning of the sky Sunshine rays stray slowly in Once clouds take heed and die
Hurting tears always fall Past the strike of the heart Tears of joy overcome As the darkness departs
Sit here with hands in lap Tears flow from his eyes Want to give him all my help Just a boy am I
He’s seen the world at war Times that caused him strife His soul is hit again He loses the love of his life
I’m sorry man but I don’t know what to do I wish that I did ‘cause I feel bad for you
Though I see not the years Of wisdom that you do Reunited you will be Forever in your youth
