It was his life it always had been. His lamp in his hand he saw them off in the morning and he counted them back in the evening. He was the harbour light. Once they saw his lamp they  felt home safe. Five generations he had taught. He was afraid to die, who  would take his place.

almost bereavement

I am praying for you, we all are. Please read original post and comment.

My Blog

Living with a person who has Dementia is almost like bereavement.

The one you have known and loved for many many years is slowly slipping away.

Instead of being ‘Tess’ or ‘your Mother’ I am now referred to as ‘My Wife’

names of things are forgotten, conversations are not possible as concentration lapses very quickly. Simple tasks take longer to complete. Confusion creeps in

With the shortening of days comes restlessness and the need to shut things down and go to bed.

This brings loneliness and feelings of rejection, sometimes one even feels as if they are no longer relevant.

patience and understanding  are sometimes in short supply!

Pray for us.

Away, come away,

Empty your heart of it’s mortal dream..W.B Yeats.



The maiden watched in awe

As beauty passed her by 

The outward facade was all she saw

The sight of wonder made her sigh.
Three horses all bedecked in gold

The first damsel a unicorn rode

An escorts of tiny birds, enchanting to behold.

So beautiful the magic did unfold.
The maiden unknowing of their fate

Begged to join them on their ride

A hunger  for escape she could not sate.

The anguish in their eyes they could not hide.

               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All that glitters is not gold

Though the were wonderous to behold.

They could neither rest nor eat

On their quest they had to keep.
The maiden who wished to escape

Only saw the fine procession

Not see their pain, their riches fake.

She was luckier than them.

Song Lyric Sunday. Apologies.

This is part of Song Lyric Sunday devised by Helen Vahdati. This week her choice in conjunction with Simply Marquessa. 

The theme is Apologies.

The song I have picked is by Evanescence

 

Lyrics below from AtoZ Lyrics.

“Forgive Me”


Can you forgive me again?
I don’t know what I said
But I didn’t mean to hurt you

I heard the words come out
I felt that I would die
It hurt so much to hurt you

Then you look at me
You’re not shouting anymore
You’re silently broken

I’d give anything now
to kill those words for you

Each time I say something I regret I cry “I don’t want to lose you.”
But somehow I know that you will never leave me, yeah.

‘Cause you were made for me
Somehow I’ll make you see
How happy you make me

I can’t live this life
Without you by my side
I need you to survive

So stay with me
You look in my eyes and I’m screaming inside that I’m sorry.

And you forgive me again
You’re my one true friend
And I never meant to hurt you

A Month With Yeats: Day 12.

Today’s quote from Yeats brought to us from Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes, as part of her alternative to NanoWritMo . A Month With Yeats.

Quotes and Pingback Here
“He made the world to be a grassy road.

Before her wondering feet” W.B Yeats.


Of the night stars was she

Wondering which ever path she chose.

Of earth and preditory man was he

He wanted her routes to close.
Casting a net he caught her 

Down from the skies he brought her.

Into the harsh world, her path to weave

Forrests and rivers he gave her.
He offered all and begged her not to leave.

So green paths she walked to nowhere.

Her mind and dreams still of the sky

Dreaming of the day when again she could fly.
