Dear Memory Loss,
You’ve knocked me out and knocked me down,
You’ve made me cry and made me frown.
You’ve bruised my face and made me cry,
I don’t want sympathy I just want to ask – why?
Why is it me you feel to attack?
Because there’s only so long that I can fight back.
I may have a small army of family and friends,
But they also wonder just when will this end.
It’s been over a year that you’ve filled me with fear,
Can we not change this now, maybe switch down a gear?
The doctors tried to help but they have no idea,
I haven’t given up yet but I am extremely near.
I want to wave the white flag, surrender it all,
There’s no light in this tunnel, it’s just a brick wall.
