My little Frankie

Standard

Friday 28th September

How’s my little Frankie?

Your dear Nan asked today

He’s gone off to heaven

I struggled quietly to say

But you didn’t tell me

Her tears fall in dismay

.

Dementia’s a curse

Her mind in disarray

Confusion, lost mem’ries

Pain that won’t go away

I did love him so much

The games we used to play

.

Trying to remember

When life was all okay

A time of innocence

Filled with fun everyday

How things change so swiftly

Now the brain does decay

.

We all loved you so much

Wish you were here to stay

Nan cannot understand

That you have passed away

My dear little Frankie

In heaven’s where you lay

.

Love you so much

Sweet Angel son

    • Thank you.
      Yes, it’s truly awful.
      And yesterday my mum was convinced that she didn’t know that Frank had passed away, and was adamant that I hadn’t told her.
      It’s been three and a half years.

      It certainly is a cruel disease; losing the ability to recall memories is so very sad, and to see the slowing of the thinking process and the apathy setting in, is most disheartening.
