Lost
by   
11/18/2008 / Poetry


Tears roll down her sunken cheeks
Sorrow falls from all she seeks
Memories
"Where have they gone?"

Silent weeping, full of dread
Photos stand beside her bed
Treasures
No longer mean a thing.

Recollections of a lifetime friend
She cannot comprehend
Inquires
"What was her name again?"

Recounted images, shapeless faces
Times past gone, she embraces
Snapshots
Inside a puzzled mind.

Unsure of the man beside her lies
Sleep won't come to heavy eyes
Confused
"Why can't she remember?"

Dark hours bring loss and sadness
Barely surviving utter madness
Loneliness
Within a baffled mind.

Laughter echoes through the day
Someone brought a big bouquet
Mystified
"Who was that nice young man?"

Foreign words, befuddled identities
"How can she speak obscenities?"
Misunderstood
Unable to say things clear.

Caring physicians calm her protests
Guide her through painless tests
Frustration
"Why can't she tell the time?"

Rejecting yet one more embrace
To just become another face
Heartache
Mirrored in her children's eyes.

This poem is dedicated to those who suffer from dementia and for family members who find themselves - forgotten.


Dementia is a decline of reasoning, memory, and other mental abilities (the cognitive functions). This decline eventually impairs the ability to carry out everyday activities such as driving; household chores; and even personal care such as bathing, dressing, and feeding (often called activities of daily living, or ADLs).

Chrissy Siggee is the author of 'Glimpses of His Glory', a collection of her poetry, devotions, pencil illustrations and nature photos. - SORRY - SOLD OUT!
Chrissy is also the author of the teen novel 'Out of the Shadows - Jenna's Secret.' http://chrissysiggee.com/shadows/
