I have been told to try and write thoughts and feelings down as part of my therapy for stress caused by caring for my mum with vascular dementia. So
I gave it a go, Im a bit wooden at this so apologies but thought I would share!
You look so sad sitting there in your chair
You look so frail I can see your bones
I really wish you didnt feel so alone
Your eyes meet mine and glisten with tears
I wish I could take away all your fears
"Where's Wendy" you ask and again I sense fear
and as I take your hand I say "I'm here mum right here"
and as we sit like this as we often do
I truly wish my dreams could come true
and that you were here again as it used to be
and me a child feeling safe on your knee
I miss you mum with all my heart
and it hurts me so I feel distraught
your breathing slows and you fall to sleep
dreaming of days gone by when you were free.
