Support & Insight for the Autumn of Life

You Are Here

MUSIC VIDEO:

Deeply beautiful, this song is in support of the courageous people between 29 and 65 with “younger-onset dementia”, also known as early-onset dementia. Close your eyes and listen to this intensely hopeful melody.


You are here

Lyrics below video…

Lyrics:

God knows what’s happening here
I’m all alone in my fear
“Early onset” is what I’ve been told
I’m too young to be old

All the memories I’ve known
Are fading into the unknown
The life I lived with the people I love
Are ghosts that haunt me now
And I need to know somehow…

(Chorus)
You are here
You are near
Hold my hand
One thing remains through the years — you are here.

I look in the mirror and what do I see?
The eyes of a stranger stare back at me
The look is familiar but something is wrong
Like an old forgotten song
Can you help me sing along?

(Chorus)
You are here (Back up vocal- I love you)
You are near
Hold my hand
One thing remains through the years — you are here.

(Bridge)
All that I know is this moment right now
You may be a stranger but love me somehow
In time you will get to know
Love’s hardest lesson is in letting go

One day you’ll pack up my things
I’ll leave you behind spreading my wings
Forgetting confusion, losing the pain
But I’ll remember your name
And I’ll love you just the same…

(Chorus repeated)
You are (Back up vocal We love you)
You are near Hold my hand
One thing remains through the years — you are here.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
