Dementia’s mind

Locked inside a strangers mind,

they wait.

In search of treasured memories,

they wait.

Speaking to loved ones they no longer recognize,

they wait.

Playing a lone game of seek and find,

they wait.

Scared the second control loses grip,

they wait.

Masking forgotten words with clever tricks,

they wait.

For someone to hold a mirror up,

they wait.

To accept themselves as never to be the same,

they wait.

The answer to the question, why me?

they wait.
