I Haven’t Got the Plague

As I walked through town today, I saw a friendly face,
But as he walked towards me, he then walked past with pace,
I'm sure that he had seen me, and saw my friendly wave,
I've only got Dementia, and not Bubonic plague…
Why do people treat me so, why are they so cruel…
I'm just the same as them, not some bumbling fool,
Some are friends I have known, all my working life,
Who used to chat and laugh, to both me and my wife…
But now most of them act as if I don't exist…
And all the good times that we had are just a distant mist…
I still laugh and I still cry, and still know that they're there,
Even when they ignore me, without a fleeting care…
But at least I know now who really my friends…are…
And ones that I can trust, right up to the end…
So to those friends I have lost, I say to one and all…
I hope the dementia demon, never comes to call…
