She Doesn't Know Me

She doesn't know me anymore - Doesn't recognize my face ---
This woman who carried me and raised me now cannot seem to place
Just where it is she knows me from - Nor how I came to be ---
The truth of this realization is simply crushing me ---
I understand the illness is taking her away
From me - and those who love her - We cannot make her stay
But something deep inside me still grieves each day goes by ---
For she is yet my mother even though I know she tries
To make sense out of nothing - Her life - Now lost to me -
It hurts so bad because I love her - And she doesn't even know me.....
