I’m Living.

GraveWithFlowers.gifJust a line to say I’m living,
That I’m not among the dead.
Though I’m getting more forgetful,
And mixed up in the head.

PairOfSunglasses_Med.gifI’ve got used to my arthritis,
To my dentures I’m resigned,
I can manage my bifocals,
But, O God, I miss my mind.

GrandmaCloseUp_Med.gifFor sometimes I can’t remember,
When I stand upon the stair,
If I must go up for something,
Or have I just come down from there.

RefrigeratorOpening_Sm.gifAnd before the foutset, so often,
My poor minds filled with doubt,
Have I just put the food away,
Or come to take it out.

CountSheep.gifAnd there’s times in the dark,
With my nightcap on my head,
I don’t know if I just got up,
Or be counting Sheep instead.

SnailCarringMail_Med.gifSo if it’s my turn to write to you,
There’s no need to get sore,
I may think that I’ve written,
And don’t want to be a bore.

HeartBeating_Sm.gifSo remember, I do love you,
And wish that you were near,
But now it’s nearly mail time,
So I must say, “Goodbye Dear.”

MailboxGreenOpenClose_Sm.gif I stand beside the mailbox,
With my face so very red,
Instead of mailing your letter,
I’ve opened it instead.
