Dementia

She sits and waits.
Days are long
People walk past her,
Do they not see her ?
Her mind wanders back in time
Her children were small
She had a family
Where did they go ?
She once was a child...
Playing in the creek with
Her sisters near by,
Lost in memories,
Lost in time,
She heard her mother calling her...
Come in the house...
She looks up to someone in white
The smile left her face
How did this happen ?
How did I get here ,
When just moments ago I was home...
The nurse smiles and says it's time..
Time for what ?
To eat. How could I forget that ?
No control, Just memories to relive.
When does it end ?
