A Dementia Friend

'Who do you see when you look at me?'
I'm not the person I used to be.
At times I will not know your name,
But really I am not to blame.

Read Sarah's poem

The first time

The first time it happened was Saturday, March 14, 2015. It lasted only momentarily, just about as long as it takes to pronounce the word. Then it was over. But, I won't forget it. That's an ironic statement to us dementia folks.

What do you mean?

Are you somebody that I used to know,
Someone I met in one of my past lives?
The little signs of recognition grow,
I search inside for something that survives.
