Dementia Journeys Haiku: Early Mourning Son

I recently launched a new social venture website Dementia Journeys – My hope is that it will grow into a forum where people taking such a journey can come to find information and communicate with others in remembering the smiles, love and laughter.

My mourning process started from the last hug and kiss I gave her when I left her the last time to return to Australia. I’m sure many sons who live close to your loved one also have these feelings. Miles/Kilometres are not the only distance that might trigger these feelings…

Have you ever felt like the words in this haiku?

John has  started a Haiku series on experiences during a Dementia Journey and aims to produce a book of these Haiku, donating the profits to Dementia research. To help him with this project, he’d love to hear from others on, or who have taken, a Dementia Journey. You can contribute to this discussion on our forum here.
