My Rememberer's Broke


My Rememberer's Broke

My Forgettor's getting better

But my Rememberer's broke

To you that might seem funny

But to me, it is no joke

For when I'm "here" I am wondering

If I should really be "there"

And when I try to think it through

I haven't really got a clue!

Oft times I walk into a room

Say "what am I here for?"

I wrack my brain, but all in vain

A big fat zero is my score

At times, I put something away

Where it is safe, but Gee,

The person it's safest from

Is, generally me!

When shopping, I may see someone,

Say "hi", and have a chat.

Then, when that person walks away

I ask myself, "who's that?".

Yes, my Forgettor's getting better,

While my Rememberer's is broke

And it's driving me totally crazy

And sadly, that isn't a joke.

Poppy - I love this.  Pretty much sums it up doesn't it?  Hope you're dealing with it well and wish you only the best.

Very accurate, so very very true,

I give you lots of credit, credit where it's due,

I'd fix your rememberer, but I haven't any glue,

And even if I had, I wouldn't have a clue,

How to use it prop'ly. I'd need a brain that's new,

Welcome to our brave new world, I took my cue from you!


Best wishes Poppy, great story and so eloquently put!
