DEALING WITH DEMENTIA.
Hello mom, it's good to see you after all this time
I've been abroad trying to make some golden dime
I'm back to splurge you with so much money
Back from the land flowing with milk and honey.
Hello mom, you don't seem too excited
It's me, Michael, your son, playing for Manchester United
Can't you see me as I wave to you, it's been so long
Mom ...mom! Is there something wrong?
Mom, why do you keep calling me Daniel
You named me yourself, my name is Michael
And why do you keep talking to daddy?
We both know he's been dead 20 years already.
Mom, why do you keep misplacing everything?
I found your watch yesterday in the washing machine
And why did you pay the salesman 1000 dollars?
For an item that cost only 10 dollars.
Mom, I'm so sorry I neglected you
But I'd gladly give away all this wealth for your memory to be returned to you
For what's the use if I'm so wealthy
And my dear mom can't remember me.
