AS YOU DRIFT AWAY

hereís
your
pencil
make a list
weíll go shopping soon
donít forget to write down Ďbog rollí


hereís
your
car keys
maybe I
should drive? last time you
got us lost on the roundabout


hereís
your
coat, dear
itís cold now
yes, past Christmas, hon
can I help you tie your laces?


hereís
your
kiss, love
youíll always
be the only man
to make me shiver and giggle


even
as
your brain
drifts sideways
Iíll be here until
you cannot remember my name


(I wrote this one in January 2007 and it's come back to haunt me as my fiancee has just been told he may have multiple sclerosis.)
