The Visions We Share

Hearthside Manor – University Place, WA

Lon Cole is a dear friend of Hearthside Manor who also suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. He has offered to share a poem with our readers each month. These poems are from his new book Celebrate Survival. Enjoy!

To be young again is a dream come true
We learn as we age that life isn’t new

We get tired easier than we did before
We were always in a hurry and lived to explore

Now time is so precious we pay a high price
We dream of days when all was so nice

The visions we share are simple today
That’s because we needed them that way
Your only as old as your heart wants to be
So live all you can and learn to be free
