You're the shell of the person I once knew When I talk I know you can hear But I barely feel your spirit lingering near
You've given up… at least part way I can't help but envision the words that you'd say If you weren't the shell of a person I once knew.
You express your love for me, but that's just it You'd rather I come and quietly sit I wish you were more than the shell of a person I once knew.
I love you with all of my heart and soul Sometimes I feel like I'm losing control Because it's hard to see the shell of a person I once knew.
My heart hurts because I know you're aching Your body's there, but it's just the casing It's the shell of a person I once knew.
I don't want you to die; I'd be left here on earth But passing on brings peace and rebirth. You'd be more than the shell of a person I once knew.
It's your choice in the end to fight or give up. It's not our actions that define when or what… Please be more than the shell of a person I once knew.
Release your spirit to Heavenly Father's grace Only then will you see his kind, smiling face. No longer a shell of a person I once knew.
You'd be free from all the worldly limitations. In heaven you'd be expressing exclamations, Freed from the shell of a person I once knew.
You're not really the shell of a person I once knew, You're my mother and I love you. You're not a burden that I heavily have to bear You're strength, inspiration, and care. You're kind and loving and all that I aspire to be It's selfish to want to keep you here close to me.
You get to choose how long you want to stay So I'll keep on coming every day I'll rub your feet and scratch your back Read you your line up and help you take a bath.
Mom, take your time, it's patience I'm learning I'm developing and my soul's constantly yearning. Each lesson is coming… selflessness and humility You're who I want to be.
A forgotten life
- by Linda Harrison58
She resides in a home, sits in a chair Nothing to bother her, make her worry or care. Carers to help her wash and dress Doing all that they can not to cause her distress. She smiles and accepts the care that they give the meals and the medicines she depends on to live.
Her mind should have memories both good and bad Why can't she remember the life she once had. Not aware of the people who came to see her today or what they told her, or how long the stay.
Family and friends she no longer knows Just a flicker of remembrance occasionally shows. The memories are gone, now just a blank empty space Remembering nothing she had before she came to this place.
Is she sad and afraid, she can't let us know Because these are emotions she's unable to show. All that's changed is her mind, she is still there The same person for whom I always will care. I'll always remember what she means to me Because she's my mum, who else could she be.
