The Parent of Today, the Parent of Yesterday

A short poem about how dementia takes one life and gives another life.

Yesterday is gone, today is new
the parent who was is anew
to no fault of their own

be thankful for the years

hasting time away
makes regret for a future day
go with what you have
someone in a worse state
easily could wish…
