I used to have a memory
Or at least, I think I did.
I remembered names of people
And the things that people said.
I remembered going places
And all the folk we met.
But sadly memories now are fading
And now easy to forget
I forget the names of people
I forget the plans we made
I forget the things I said I’d do
And forget the things I said.
But I’ll never forget the love I feel
Or the emotions deep inside
For those that love me dearly
Will always be at my side.
We all have our melancholy days and should allow ourselves the luxury of accepting them because tomorrow is a new day with new emotions.
