Where is the little boy?

Where is the little boy, who learnt to write his name?

He stands here now before you, supported by a frame.

Where is the little girl, who learnt to tie her lace?

She sits there in her chair, with lines upon her face.

Where is the little boy, so used to climbing trees?

He sits now in the corner, a rug upon his knees.

Where is the handsome groom and sweetly blushing bride?

He sits there gently rocking, his sweetheart by his side.

Where is the pretty teen, awaiting her first dance?

Now people pass her by, without a passing glance.

Though age has crept upon them and wrinkles multiplied…

The child, the youth that lives within, forever will abide…

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
