I Am Still Me!

Author:

My job involves caring for the elderly in 12 hour sittings. The majority of our clients suffer from the cruelty of dementia.

WHO AM I?


Who am I?

Who are you?

Jumbled moments

Help me do!!

X

Where did I come from?

Where do I go?

Once I just knew

When life did flow.

X

Each new dawn

Uncertain and grey!

Where is the sun

Which warmed each day?

X

Sometimes I pretend

I pretend to know

Not wanting the truth

To painfully show!

X

I once had a life

But now that’s gone!

What is this world

Where hope once shone?

X

I don’t understand

Your patience wears thin!

But It’s not my fault

I am so lost within!

X

I am so confused

That is a fact!

Please please help

Keep dignity intact!

x

Please take my hand

Please show me the way.

To not feel scared

By each new day.

X

Tell me you love me

And understand.

Don’t say too much

Just hold my hand.

X

My mind is locked

In this living hell!

There is no potion

To break the spell!

X

Some days quite good

Some so much worse!

There is no escape

From this life shattering curse !!!

X

From confusion and pain

I’ll one day be free!

Till then please remember

That I am still ME!
