Whence Comes the Night

The night comes and so do the fears 

The memory has weakened as many are the years

The confusion and doubts makes illusions seem real

The losses and aloneness is the sadness they feel

Such is the power of dementia's dark hold

An unrelenting force so uncaring and so cold.

I pray for their saftey and for their hope

For I cannot imagine how they are able to cope.

I can see the pain as they try to remember and the regret

I wish they also could remember that God will not forget...dm
