I Know I Had It
Where have all the words gone,
I can’t find them any more.
I know I want to say something,
But my brain shuts like a door.
I know I want to get something,
I’ve started up the stair.
But am I going up or down
I should have stayed down there!
I had the darn thing yesterday,
I put it down with care.
Trouble is, though I know I did,
I can’t remember where!
I know you told me where to be,
I said, “I’ll see you there.”
So, sorry that I am so late,
I waited here, not there!
So please, be patient with me dear,
You’ll get this way one day.
But, trouble is, as I have told,
You’ll have forgotten by next day!
Now, what was I doing………
