    Irish Caregivers' Poetry Winner

    “Twilight Zone” by Noelle Dalton

    I look across the table at the man I love so much
    I long for recognition and a fond and loving touch
    But he’s lost in dark dementia, not knowing what to do
    My tall and handsome husband and he’s only sixty-two.
    I look into those lovely eyes and see within confusion
    He’s wondering if it’s really me of is it an illusion.
    The simplest tasks just prove too much
    I try to help and not to rush.
    He’s angry now saying “what’s wrong with me?”
    “I’m all mixed up in my memory”
    I turn away to hide my tears
    And think of all those bygone years
    When in the heady days of rock ‘n’ roll
    He used to top the bill
    He sang in all the ballrooms from Crossmaglen to Waterville
    With Elvis songs, the Hucklebuck
    And Country and Western too
    We danced for hours and had such fun
    For just a bob or two.

    We walk into the garden
    Spring is here, the birds are building
    The daffodils wave in the breeze
    And there’s a whisper from the trees.
    I tell him he should bake a breath
    Fresh air is good and helps our health.
    He starts to sing that lovely voice
    The words are there, it is so nice.
    So deep within the darkness that talent still exists
    The words and music he so loved continue to persist
    His audience is now just me
    His competition the birdsong in the tree.

    Life right now should be so good
    More time together doing things we never could,
    Our children grown more time to spend
    We should be together until the end.
    I must not look too far ahead
    It only fills my heart with dread.
    No matter what I must go on
    Live for today yesterday’s gone.
    Don’t waste the time or ask ‘why me’?
    Just know life has no guarantee.
