Henry's Poem by Amaeh Reed (First Prize)

An Ode to Alzheimer's: Can You Remember? by Alyssa Sim (Second Prize)

Can you remember growing up on a farm,
playing with brothers and sisters and sharing a yarn?

Can you remember that long ride to school,
balancing on handlebars and playing the fool?

Can you remember my little baby face,
your children growing up at a crazy pace?

Can you remember playing tennis and board games,
fishing all day and camping by the flames?

Can you remember the smell of fresh bread,
the stories we told and all the things that we said?

Can you remember the delicious cakes you baked,
the beautiful gardens you grew and shaped?

Can you remember my name as you look at my face,
am I a stranger to you in this place?
