How long before my memory fades

How often will I forget your name?

Will my mind be forever robbed

Of laughter, sorrow and pain?

When I can no longer find them

Where will my memories go?

Will you know that I still love you

When your face I no longer know?

Will dementia drive me insane

Will I scream out, but have no voice?

Will my body shut down in protest

Will I simply have no choice?

Will my mind just wander

Or be locked up in another place?

Will dreams turn into nightmares

Where I run a never ending race?

In search of distant memories

Looking for a friendly face.

Will dementia rob me of my life

And take me from this place?

The home that we have shared

The family we have reared.

I'm so afraid to lose it all

As if it were never there.

I prey dear God, don't let it happen

Don't let dementia take from me.

The only thing I've left in life

My memories!
