2017 and beyond

Some of us have family we grew up with and yet we do not know why

Why they do not believe dementia is now part of my brain, nor do they try

Sadness, frustration, anger and disbelief

I don’t have to call him that is such a relief

My wish is a simple one, that’s how it appears to me

Make 2017 the year of belief for all including you and me

You see I have dementia and I am not seventy five or even eighty plus

You can’t see my dementia, I will continue to function without any fuss

I refuse to tell you how I really feel

You see I promised myself that for 2017 and beyond my beliefs you will not steal

I have made a promise to myself that in 2017 I will not speak ill of any human being at all

I can call you whatever I like up till then, that is my call

Expletives a plenty as I am sure you are aware

Oh, sorry I thought you really cared
