Glimmers of you ebb

through the drowning Forgotten.

Help, your eyes plead. Gone.


Authors Note:

Written with compassion for anyone living with dementia, whether supporting their loved ones or facing it themselves.

(excerpt from NHS.uk)

One in 14 people over the age of 65 have dementia, and the condition affects 1 in 6 people over 80.

    Very raw with emotion in three lines. So much of what happens with the disease is the person crying for help. Well done β™₯️ Congratulations on Top story too.

    Brought tears to my eyes. That last line! I just had a conversation about a family member who is entering dementia, so it was particularly evocative for me.
