Dementia Poetry: Walk With Me Down Dementia`s Path

By Norman McNamara

Walk with me my friend, walk with me a while,
Step into my shoes, and walk a different mile,
Do you see what I see, through the foggy mist?
What can’t you see now? have you got a list?
Can you see things clearly, or cross a road ok?
Do you know what time it is, can you name the day?
Walking down the road, is not so easy now,
Do you feel your stumbling, and your head do bow?
When you meet your “friends” do they act the same?
Do they wave at you from across the street, do they call your name?
Or do they walk away, pretending your not there,
After years of friendship, do they now not care?
So walk with me my friend, walk with me a while,
Step into my shoes, and walk a different mile,
This i have to go through, each and every day,
I pray dementia`s demons, never come your way,
