Mother’s Day Dementia

Sit and close your eyes for a while
Think of the years that have passed
Life travels at an amazing speed
Weeks, months and years go so fast
As Children we are lucky to have parents
They teach us the good and what’s bad
With a watchful eye of Mother
Accompanied by an ever loving Dad
But sometimes fate deals a hand that’s not fair
Or that’s the way it may seem
Having to deal with Dementia is hard
But the Family then may act as a Team
The Love that was shown to you as a child
When growing you needed to learn
Now is the time to remember that Love
Which you readily give back to Mum in return
Tho some may think she’s different these days
To you she’s your Mum just the same
Except that sometimes you have to read her face
If it’s difficult for her to remember your name
And every year there’s a special day
Mother’s Day as it’s known far and wide
So show her and tell her how much you love her
With open arms that embrace her inside.
