Walk with Me

Walk with me

Walk a while with me my friends, walk with me today.
Come and see what I see, and listen to what I say.
Yes I have dementia, and sometimes I get worse,
Please be very grateful, that you don't have this curse.
But we are all that different, the likes of you and me?
We breathe the same; we feel the same,
the same things we do see.
The only difference is my friends, I don't feel that well,
When I can't remember everything you tell
My heart beats just as quick as yours, my blood runs just as fast.
But because of my dementia, the shadow it is cast
Its the shadow cast by others, that takes away my light,
turns my life to darkness, my pleasure into fright,
for when you cast that shadow and it comes my way
It drains me of my energy, makes me hude, or run away
Sometimes I do different things, my mind is not my own.
But do YOU never talk to yourself, when you are alone?
So am I all that different, the likes of you and me
So my friends come walk a while, the future's ours to see.

Should say Norrms and not Norma

Diagnosed with dementia 9 years ago aged just 50
