This piece hits close to home and brought back many memories of my Mom who passed away from the complications of Alzheimers and Dementia. A sad yet beautiful piece that describes the very essence of this terrible disease.
Mental illness is on the rise and I hope that in time there will be a Cure.

I'm hoping that this is poetic empathy rather than personal experience. Dementia is such a debilitating illness. Though from talking to people with early onset dementia the early symptoms can be very similar to panic attacks, a lack of awareness. Nicely expressed empathic write Hellon.
You have touched upon a very tear-provoking reality that have become a part of our time... I guess that was the magical spell that brought your poem to the front page...
Unfortunately I’m not here to praise your poem. After reading it for 20 times
I’m confident to say that this poem should have never been on the front page!
Not because it’s not better than the other two, but because you can do much better... Your poem should have reflected on so much more!!!! I really don’t need to or wanting to list all the possibilities
