I want…

To be near the people who love and know me well, Although remembering their names is starting to tell!

Please be patient and smile or just be kind, I’m a positive soul, but it’s a testing time.

A gentle touch or a kiss on the cheek, But try not to help me move about or I may freak.

My days are long and filled with nothing, As I can no longer do the things that made me something.

Thank you for caring and reading these words, As my inner thoughts are no longer heard!
