Do I owe you a letter? - The sad state of Memory Loss

Just a line to say I'm living,
That I'm not among the dead,
Though I'm getting more forgetful,
And mixed up in my head.

For sometimes I can't remember
When I stand at the foot of the stairs,
If I must go up for something,
Or have just come down from there.

And before the refrigerator so often,
My mind is filled with doubt.
Have I come to put the food away,
Or have I come to take it out?

And at times when it is dark,
With a nightcap on my head,
I don't know if I'm retiring,
Or just getting out of bed.

So if it’s my turn to write you,
There is no need of getting sore.
I may think that I have written,
And don't want to be a bore.

So remember I do love you,
And I wish that you were here.
But now it's nearly mail time,
So I must say goodbye, my dear.

So I stand beside the mailbox,
With a face so very red.
Instead of mailing you my letter,
I had opened it instead!
