Remembering?

 

ink sketch

I cannot remember

The things I have said,

The act of remembering

It feels me with dread!

 

I remember the past

As if I was there.

But what I’ve just eaten?

It’s really unfair!

People I’ve known,

For short or for long,

The names that they have

I’m afraid that they’re gone!

 

I want to remember,

I’m afraid to forget,

I feel I am losing,

Now that is a threat!

 

Time passes on

For thee and for me,

I’ll live in the moment

Until I am free!

    Now there is the one thing that still halts me in my tracks Pam…trying to remember someone’s name. It’s like the memory racks in my brain have been knocked over and I’m trying to sort through the complete A to Z to just find one name 😀
