My Memory is Just Fine

Thank you very much. How is your memory? I have the same memory skills I had when I was 10 years old. Well, kinda. Sorta. I know the three most important things in life are the relationships we build, the legacy we leave, and, uh, you know, that third thing. It's right on the tip of my brain.

A Day to Remember

Just a line to say I'm living, 
That I'm not among the dead.  
I'm just getting more forgetful,  
And more mixed up in the head.  

One thing I can't remember
When I stand at the foot of the stair,
Was I going up for something
Or did I just come down from there?

I stand before the refrigerator,
My poor mind filled with doubt:
Have I just put the food away?
Or have I come to take it out?

Then snug in robe and nightgown,
With curlers on my head . . .
Was I going to retire?
Or . . . just getting out of bed?

So if it is my turn to write you,
There is no need of getting sore,
I probably think that I have written
And don't want to be a bore.

I'm going out to mail this letter,
For the mailman's almost here . . .
I look forward to your answer,
For now, goodbye, my dear.


There I stood beside the mailbox,
With a face so very red,
Instead of mailing you my letter,
I had opened it instead ! ! !
