Sorry that I missed your post when you made it. Im so sorry you lost your Mum. It sounds like a peaceful passing after you both endured so much. It might be too late, but this is a poem I found that I would use for my own Mums funeral. It described our journey through dementia. I hope it brings you some comfort in the days ahead. You were her everything and we salute you. by Brenda Houck Do not ask me to remember Don’t try to make me understand Let me rest and know you’re with me Kiss my cheek and hold my hand. I’m confused beyond your concept I am sad and sick and lost All I know is that I need you To be with me at all cost. Do not lose your patience with me Do not scold or curse or cry I can’t help the way I’m acting Can’t be different though I try. Just remember that I need you That the best of me is gone Please don’t fail to stand beside me Love me until my life is done. I didn’t ask for this affliction, I didn’t want this day to come Though I sensed my soul was leaving As my body began to roam Hold me when I start to tremble, When I stare away so far. Only you can bring me comfort, Though I may not know who you are. When my life is over And your normal days return Know how much I loved you And how much you really learned. About life and death and sickness And the pain that each can bring Know you were my angel, You were my everything.
