Dementia Blues

Splash of turquoise, Prussian blue
Swirls of colour in midnight hue
Colour stimulates the view
More of life beyond the blue

Shadow of her former self yet
Still that woman you can’t forget
Standing still behind the chair
Wearing blue ribbons in her hair

Colour faded memories too
Amongst the myriad shades of blue
Sadness comes and sadness goes
Happiness like the bluebell grows

Dementia stealing from the mind
But many memories are left behind
Bubbling from a cerulean lagoon
Underneath a pale blue moon
