Words are nothing

Without recollection

Just a jumble

As the memories crumble.

 

Yesterday's became distant

Nothing's too blame

In this world of twilight

The day dementia came.

 

Amused yet confused

The stars no longer shine

To you everything seems normal

All around seems fine.

 

In your world

There's much confusion

A cerebral illusion

No hint of doubt.

 

In my world

All’s commotion

That makes me

Want to shout.

 

The things you say

Seem so far away

As dementia

Plays it’s part.

 

Your decline

Creates a sadness

In the chasms

Of my heart.
