Sorry, who are you?

My blog post on this explains the story behind this one. Dementia is an awful condition for everyone involved so I wrote this poem and then the following one from the two spouses’ points of view.

Sorry, who are you?
(From a wife with dementia to her husband)

‘Sorry, who are you?
I like that picture.
Yes I’d like some orange
Juice.’

‘Sorry, who are you?
I like you a lot but
why have you given
me orange juice?’

‘Sorry, who are you?
I hate that picture!
Let me tell you a story. It’s
really funny.

‘Sorry, who are you?
I don’t feel like telling a
story, I just want to go home!

Sorry, who are you?
Where is my orange juice?
I’m parched, I want it now!
