Mind Fading Away

Mind fading away

Ravaged by illness and age

Fate of so many

Such a sad state of affairs

Watching those we love forget

Feeling so helpless

We’ve become total strangers

Passing in the night

Frustration steeped in sadness

Becomes our permanent state

  1. The sadness and the frustration truly are mutual as your choice of the word “our” in the last line conveys. Thank you for such a fine example of the volumes that can be suggested by a single word.
