Marching Forward

Every march begins with this:
A single step like a beating drum
And every step brings us closer
To the place where we belong:
A place of understanding where
Dementia has no power because
We’ve marched and squashed it underfoot
So come and join us in our cause.
Every march is going forward
Underneath this Yorkshire sky
Memory might fade or break up
But our hope will never die!
