Do not ask me to remember
Do not try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you're with me.
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I'm confused beyond your concept.
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you to be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me.
Do not scold or curse my cry.
I can't help the way I'm acting.
Can't be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you.
That the best of me is gone.
Please don't fail to stand beside me,
Love me till my life is done.

We're all plodding on OK Nikita thanks. Everyone seems to have had some kind of cold bug recently - i was very unwell with it all earlier in the week. Hope you're well.

I was always telling relatives that it didn't matter if their mum or dad couldn't remember them, they were always much happier and with it once they had visited. People living with dementia are emotion based people. Intellect has gone, but emotions never get dementia.
