Days go bye, quicker than a wink,
Perhaps it's I who needs a shrink.
The uncertainty, which stays with me, inside
My emotions, not displayed, to the outside
For family and friends, to see the pains
That is coursing, within my aged veins.
"I'm losing my mind", she said to me,
For I do not have any memory
Of things, I saw, read or ate
And I can't understand or relate,
To those forgotten moments of the past
Or names of people, I thought would last.
In the dark, early morning hours,
As I arise from my bed,
Life is such a wonderous moment,
As words, enter into my head.
I write them, so quickly now,
For if I don't, the words
Escape me, leaving without a sound,
As they fall, useless, to the ground.
No matter, the sorrow
No matter, my lament,
No matter, the morrow,
No matter, my vent,,
No matter, if you,
Are heaven sent.
I pray to the Lord
Who shines, up above,
To grant me, his servant,
With your eternal love.
