This is Me I SEE you, I hear you, I am fit and well, My memory's not good, sometimes it's hell.

I don't remember who you are to me, Are you my friend or my family? I think my husband is my dad, It makes everyone feel really sad. My daughter is my mother who never died, I look up to her and beam with pride, Please don't ignore me, I am here, I have feelings, I shed a tear. Why is that sandwich in that drawer? And the knife and fork set out on the floor, I have a sense of humour, I can laugh and joke, I am just the same as the other folk. But there's a difference between you and me, I have that dreaded dementia, you see.
