Dementia

Dementia


At first you were angry
     And following anger
          There is always silence

Then you had questions
     But you resisted asking
          To protect your pride

Of course you were sorry
     But couldn't remember why
          So the point was lost

When sleep finally returned
     It was deep and sound
          Undisturbed by memory

  1. You have composed a poem that deeply touched me and anyone who has cared for a loved one suffering with Alzheimer’s.
