I try to act without rancour or blame, because tomorrow, it will probably be the same …


Day after day he searches to find

Objects mislaid due to his mind

A mind once so brilliant and so very keen

Probing, asking since he was a teen.

 

It seems to me in some strange way

His mind is dealing with long ago days.

His sentences are few and brief

His loss of memory causes him grief.

 

Doctors describe dementia to the letter

But living it describes it better.

Sometimes things seem nearly  okay

So then we take things day by day.

 

I use patience and dedication

And show compassion without frustration.

I try to act without rancour or blame

Because tomorrow it will probably be the same.
