Please don't forget me


Please don't forget me

My mind clouds and my thoughts are scrambled. And I struggling to remember 


Please don't forget me

When I don't recognize your beautiful face or remember the name that I gave you. Remember for me. 


Be patience with me 

 When I repeat myself, repeat myself. 

When the past becomes my present 

And I don't know the day, month or year. 


 Stay calm. 

When the storm of emotions hit and frustration, anger and fear arises. 

Remember that I love you, that will never change 


Be strong

But don't hold it all in. 

Let the frustrate, anger and tears flow

Grieve for the loss of what was and now is. 

You are strong


And even tho I'm not the person I once was and will forget you.  

Please don't forget me
