Where has My Memory gone?
I often ask, Things that happened last week,
have escaped Me.
What do You Mean, I've said it before?
I don't remember at all. So it couldn't be.
I remember the day that Daddy Died as if
it happened just today, yet I forget what I watched
on TV Last night, So Strange, he's been gone 28 years.
Did you recieve the letter I wrote
Or Did I forget to send it?
It told you hello It said How I was, it told You that
Some things had changed.
You never knew....it never arrived and now things
are all brand New... Guess that day died.
Haven't I eaten? I can't recall, Was it a sandwich or
was it roast pork?
Running , walking, rolling along, I had so much fun this
year, But you tell me I haven't, Not walked, for years
My Daydreams are all that I've saw.
In the living room sat Ruth, or was that Roxanne? In front
of a screen so bright, Ruth was drooling out a design on a
bib, why a bib? She's just 29.
Where did My Mom go, God bless her soul, has she stepped out today? Who are you do I Dare ask, I don't recall if your name is Sue. Go let the dog out, before he pees, and tell that cat to behave.
What Nurse and what do you mean take that Pill?! I don't take pills today. Why am I lost, it seems so unfair, Wait....
wasn't that on last night, And was I there?
Written about the life of a family friend, now in a nursing home with alzheimers (sp?) He is lost in his own mind. So Sad to
see. He will be there for a split second living today and then the next, he's back in 1923.
