Thank you for the songs/poems. They bring home very well the process and effect of watching a loved one , slowly become a stranger.

The BBC have just made a series Of Mervyn Peake's, Gormangast trilogy. There is a very touching scene where the 'old Earl' is playing happily with his daughter and he then asks her "Do I know you?" The effect of this statement on the daughter is very well done.
