Hear My Voice

Will someone please hear my voice?
I have dementia, though not by choice,
My days and nights pass me by,
Will someone out there hear my cry?
Inside this body, I’m still me,
Speak to me and you will see,
I have thoughts, I have a heart,
To listen to me, would be a start,
Yes it’s true, I do forget,
The months, the days, the time that’s set,
But if you listen, you will hear,
About my life, what I hold dear,
And I will tell you of my life,
That did not end with Dementia`s Strife,
I still have, so much to do,
Hear my voice, and you will too

Best wishes, Norrms and family
