My auntie with dementia

Visibly Invisible

A poetic gift for my Aunt who is suffering from dementia:

I see you with unseeing eyes
I feel you with unfeeling hands
I speak to you with unspoken words
I love you and hope you understand.

My heart is full of love
My mind is askance
My memory is mostly lost
My body still wants to dance.
