Silent Intruder 💤
Dementia, a cruel invader in the mind's sacred space,
Stealing memories, leaving an empty trace.

A silent intruder, erasing life's script,
Leaving loved ones adrift, emotions eclipsed.

Fading recollections, like whispers in the breeze,
A relentless thief, bringing hearts to their knees.

Faces once familiar, now strangers in disguise,
A painful truth that brings tears to loved ones' eyes.

Yet, in the shadows of this formidable foe,
Moments of connection, a flicker, a glow.

Love's resilience, a beacon that withstands,
Guiding through the darkness with tender hands.

Though dementia may obscure what was once clear,
The warmth of compassion can persevere!!
