Please grant my visitors tolerance for my confusion,
Forgiveness for my irrationality
and the strength
To walk with me into the mist of memory
My world has become.
Please let them take my hand and
Even though I seem unaware of their presence.
Help them to know how their strength
And loving care
will drift slowly
Into the days to come just when I need it most.
Let them know when I don't recognize them
I will. . . I will.
Keep their hearts free from sorrow for me,
For my sorrow, when it comes,
Only lasts a moment,
when it's gone.
And finally Lord, please let them know,
How very much their visits mean,
How even through this
I can still feel their love.
