I walked through the door of your room,
And I saw you sat there,
All alone.
And when I sat by your side,
And took your hand in my own,
You didn't recognise me.

Time flew,
As I told you the same story 
you'd heard a million times before.
But I knew.
Knew you wouldn't remember.
Not later.
Not until I told you again.
And I cursed, 
as you forgot my name,
Yet again.

You panicked, you fought,
And you pushed me away. 
And I left your room, 
For the second time that day.
I cried,
As I closed the door.
I cried,
as I heard your sobs of confusion,
And I wished it was an illusion.
I hoped I was dreaming, 
That I'd soon wake up screaming.
But no.
No this was real.
And I wish it wasn't.
