Home // Dementia // Surrounded


By David Hudson

I looked on distant blue mountains reaching to the sky

Surely nothing could be so beautiful as the purple peaks so high

I walked a mountain trail while snow transformed the scene

The world became the Artist canvass, so magnificent and clean

Then it became apparent the Great Artist’s most glorious design

Is best viewed surrounded by it, the thought transformed my mind

I stood beside the ocean so deep, so beautiful, and vast

Surely nothing could match the magnificence of the sunset as day past

Then I viewed the world beneath the sea with so many things unknown

Once more surrounded within it, the Artist brilliance shown

There He created an unseen world as grand as it could be

He colored it with glowing hues that most will never see

I stood beside the hospital bed of a cancerred little boy

Surely nothing within this scene could bring beauty, hope, or joy

Then the Artist did His work as is always true

His hand began to mend the broken and make the broken new

When surrounded by such suffering the beauty, joy, and hope

Is found in helping others and helping others cope

I set beside the bed of the one I love so dear

As that cruel dementia delivered my worst fear

It took away the memory of the one I love so much

The thief robbed the life away of the mind I long to touch

Where can you find the Artist engulfed in a broken heart

He’s waiting there beside you to make new each broken part
