She looks at me with lost eyes
Mumbles words under her breath
She searches in vain for a time that’s lost
For a beginning that has no end!
My voice gets hoarse, my eyes go dry
I will never get what she’s trying to find
I wish… O how I wish I could take her back to her reality,
If only it existed, like it still does in her mind ….
