Do Not Ask Me to Remember

 

DO NOT ASK ME TO REMEMBER

DON'T TRY TO MAKE ME UNDERSTAND

LET ME REST AND KNOW YOU ARE WITH ME

KISS MY CHEEK AND HOLD MY HAND

 

I'M CONFUSED BEYOND YOUR CONCEPT

I AM SAD AND SICK AND LOST

ALL I KNOW IS THAT I NEED YOU

TO BE WITH ME AT ALL COST

 

DO NOT LOSE YOUR PATIENCE WITH ME

DO NOT SCOLD OR CURSE OR CRY

I CAN'T HELP THE WAY I'M ACTING

CAN'T BE DIFFERENT 'THOUGH I TRY

 

JUST REMEMBER THAT I NEED YOU

THAT THE BEST OF ME IS GONE

PLEASE DON'T FAIL TO STAND BESIDE ME

LOVE ME 'TIL MY LIFE IS DONE.

When it seems there's nothing more you can do for someone, the most loving thing may be to hold that person gently in your heart.

"It's been about the sun and the moon. It's been about happy times together. It's been about the shade and the old people and the children. It's been about colors in Fall. It's been about seasons. Isn't that enough?" -- The Fall of Freddie the Leaf by Leo Buscaglia, Ph. D.
