Don't Forget To Remember...

I am still right here…though gnarled and wrinkled so.

Yes time has had it’s way with me and I guess I’ve gotten old.

But still I’m hear before your eyes, take the time to see.

I may be old and forgetful at times, but don’t forget to remember me.

Don’t you know I cared for you from the day that you were born?

I nuzzled your little bitty head and you were loved and so adored.

Fed you and I clothed you and kept a roof above your head.

Played with you, sang to you, read stories before I put you to bed.

I picked you up each time you fell and brushed away your tears.

Bandaged and Kissed every booboo you had and shushed away your fears.

I taught you how to ride your bike, watched you climb your first tree.

I taught you to be a polite and good, you knew to say mam and please.

Why do I remind you of these times thats now gone past, you say.

Because today it seems that I have somehow gotten in your way.

I know you are busy with your family and working hard everyday.

Running to and fro, going here and there and I don’t mind to wait.

Just want to hear from you once in a while , I sometimes get lonely.

Please come and visit me soon and don’t forget to remember me.

Don't Forget To Remember...

Artist's Description

Take a stroll down the halls of a Nursing Home…take note of the sadness in their eyes…the lonliness…sense the feeling that floats through the air…so many have been forgotten.
