My Mam's been taken by this dreadful disease But what a relief, she is now at ease. Mam suffered in silence as her world fell apart Yet all through this time Mam kept her kind heart. Dementia is a horrid disease that has no pride for hours and hours, endless tears we've cried. Mam wouldn't have wanted to leave in this way But the end it came and Mam had no say . For months on end Mam struggled to think As Dementia took hold and her memory did shrink. The conversations with her got less and less Then Mam would go into deep distress. We tried to chat and understand her past But sometimes she'd change and us she would lambaste. Mam didn't mean to shout she never before Then for once in my life I am sure she swore. That wasn't Mam, it was this dreaded condition Her brain you know was in such transition. But now Mam's looking down like a great shining light She fought and fought but lost the big fight.. We will meet again I am sure we will You're at peace now there's no more being ill. Keep us some seats at one big table And keep us in check as only you were able..
