DEMENTIA, SUNDOWNING RAW AND UNFORGIVING
I wish the darkness would never come,
I wish the day would stay forever light,
I sit and dread the time as it passes,
Sat in my chair I watch the clock,
Tick tock tick tock,
The evening creeps ever closer,
My mind becomes muddled and distant,
I feel myself slipping into the abyss of what?
Of madness ? of delirium? Who knows?
Will we ever know?????
I lose half of my days sometimes,
Hours and hours I cant remember,
And that I will never get back
All my evening memories GONE forever
How much is that out of my life?
It’s now 4.29pm, how much longer?
How much longer before I forget,
Where I live, my wife
My family, what I had for lunch
DEAR GOD !! HOW MUCH LONGER ??
4.41pm, Still here, still sat in my chair,
Or Am I? Or do I imagine even this?
Some say it the environment I live in?
But I live at home, with my Angel,
She looks after me, all my family do
It’s lovely where we live,
Apart from my dementia I am so happy
So how can it be?
So sorry, got to go…………………………………………………
