I didn't have exactly the same colours, but used the closest I had to them
My poem reads:
The fog is slowly coming in, invading the walls of your mind.
Effecting all your memories, it's now just a matter of time.
I have seen the spark go from your eyes, acknowledging you can't comprehend
Yet still in life you participate, with routine your only friend.
For your loved ones it is hard to bear, as we watch you slip away
To lose more and more of the one we love, each and every day.
Dementia is hard to understand; how it randomly effects the brain
Stealing memories from moments before, whilst bringing others to life again.
I cherish the time hearing of days gone by as you sit and reminisce
Triggering my own wonderful memories of my mother who I already miss
And although there is probably many years ahead, to grieve and let you go
This journey until your eventual death, will for me be greatly painful and slow.
