Murdo Girl…Understanding brings peace.

How would you see yourself, if there were no mirrors around?

What if your birth certificate was nowhere to be found?

Your doctor took your records and left without a trace.

Thoughts faded into feelings you weren’t able erase.

 Where were all the people you had once befriended?

No names or faces came to mind. Your life had been upended.

You tried hard to remember important milestones in your life.

Were you living in the present or in the afterlife?

 It didn’t matter anymore if you were ten or ten times ten.

The days had no beginning nor did they have an end.

Then one day, your worries leave, but does confusion stay?

What is happy, what is sad, what is work, and what is play?

What is love? What is commitment? What is calm and what is fear?

 Your loved ones feel the need to make your memories reappear.

They want to teach you new skills to replace those you have lost.

They can’t comprehend a line, that has been forever crossed.

You’re not the person you once were. Someone different took your place.

But there is one single blessing those who love you must embrace.

If they do all they can to keep their memories of you alive.

Then you will feel their peace and all the love will still survive.

    Beautifully done. Like how you switched gears and also the print color.

      Thanks, cuz. You caught on to my intentionally switching gears… hence the different color. In the last stages, the disease is the cruelest to the families of those afflicted.
