My New Life (ALZHEIMER)
This early morning -- peace and calm
That make me sleep comfortable in bed
And give me that heavenly peaceful mood,
Has been interrupted by a feeling of ill health.
As the rattling sound of my alarm wakes me up
Frustration and annoyance surely start my day
I resign from the warmth of my cozy, heavy blanket;
I stretch my arm and tap off the alarm with my palm.
A strange figure enters my room, whom I don’t recognise
Someone I do not know, his voice doesn’t ring a bell at all
I feel weird, insecure, confuse, and completely angry;
‘Who are you?, what are you doing here?’ I ask of him.
I look at the mirror and see a different reflection
That’s not me I thought in my head … where am I?
I look around my own house, everything look strange;
The strange man put clothes on my bed - food on the table.
‘Put on your clothes and eat your food sir,’ I’m Phil your carer
He said, ‘the vehicle is waiting for us outside’
He asks me to wear something I don’t like;
Eat a dish that I do dislike, I don’t even know him.
Outside my house is a white van to take me to the daycentre
My own street I don’t recognise! My lovely cat I abandon
My children begging for recognition, as my memory fade away;
My beautiful, happy life has been robbed off me.
I hardly understand the only language I know
When people speak, I listen, I hear but I don’t comprehend
Everything smell different and there is noise all over the place;
The sickness has taken its toll on me and altered my life.
Please do not blame me -- its not my fault that I’m this guy
Pardon all the wrong doings I’ve done if there is any
I don’t want to make your life difficult;
In control I am not, I’m not me, so I do need your love and help.
