Nails fell on the floor
more than a decade ago
from a trembling hand.
The verdict arriv'd
Parkinson's not a tumor
First I felt reliev'd

Many pills to take,
unreadible hand writing,
no more car driving,

often sleepless nights,
new walking difficulties,
never improving...

Daily ups and downs
are your tough reality
to learn to accept.

After many tests,
tomorrow's your big day
to get surgery

Electrode implants
will stimulate your brain cells
from tomorrow on

Hope, joy, fear and stress
Your future gets defined now
We all hold our breath
