May I Always Remember

being possessed by thoughts of healing myself, 
apparitions of fear line the walls and floors; and I am left…
                 haunted

phantom of the night, hear my plea- 
                               cease the pain;
a plague crept and I am left breathless trying to hold onto memories 
I pray one day I don’t forget-
my mind can’t recall yesterday’s joy, nor will embrace tomorrow’s woe
because it won’t be remembered

-it’s complicated - I’m frustrated - feeling weak - mind can’t speak-

worry encompasses leaving me in the dark; and I am left…
                  haunted

please Lord help me hold onto these precious moments

how can I breathe knowing one day...
                I may not recognize him






*I am haunted one day I will get dementia*

thank you- I have been having short term memory problems and it is scaring me and my family. The fear of knowing one day I may not recognize my family is awful. I think medication side effect (or the mold lol) but I have to be on the med forever, so let's just pray it's all part of turning 40 ha...thank you sweet Caren :)-luloo
