Dreading The Night’s
Posted By Norm McNamara On March 19, 2012 @ 5:52 pm In Blogs | No Comments
Dreading the nights, as dark they fall,
All huddled up, into a ball,
Eyes closed tight, waiting in fright,
Oh my God, what brings the night?
Slowly drifting into the Abyss,
Trying to remember, Elaine`s gentle kiss,
The night terrors come, thick and fast,
Oh Dear Lord!! How long will they last?
Kicking and screaming as I awake,
My heart racing, too much to take,
Wild eyed and running with tears,
Full of sweat, filled with fear,
I hear a “Shush” and it’s Elaine,
Holding me, and ending my pain,
This is Dementia that you don’t see,
This is Lewy Body`s happening to me,
“Dear Lord” I ask, from one so pure
One day soon, please send us a cure
