The Continuing Battle

The battle continues

Deep within my brain

A conflict to remember

“What is your name”

It used to be familiar

The one I loved the most

This disease they call dementia

My mind is now its host

It brings on such confusion

Such anger and frustration

Why can’t I remember

Why is there such emotions

And then there is an opening

A time that I remember

A time that I recall

You are the one I love

The one who means it all

But soon the window closes

And the terror returns again

One day soon it will be over

My shell alone will remain
