A cinquain about alzheimers. -2nd November 2012.

To be forgotten.

Why do
You have to fade;
I want you here with me.
Life isn't worth living without
Your mind.

A poignant piece, John, with a gentle sadness that is touching.

Your first two lines say it all with the use of the word fade, I watched my mother do exactly that.
