One More Memory ~ Sara Westbrook

bluedbuchananJuly 4, 2006

I was lost

In the dark

Confused and afraid

Not knowing what was wrong

A few lost thoughts

Forgetful moments

I never thought

That it would come to this

One more memory

To remember me

For a lifetime come and gone

Goes on and on

When my memory fades

Think of me this way

It's my mind that's leaving me

It's not my heart

Forgotten names

Forgotten faces

I don't even know

The ones I've always loved

When I say

Things I'd never say

Know that my love

Will stay forever strong

Hold this in your heart

One more memory

To remember me

For a lifetime come and gone

Goes on and on

When my memory fades

Think of me this way

It's my mind that's leaving me

It's not my heart

Take my hand

And try to understand

My memories are gone

But my love for you lives on

Remember me for who I was

And not who I've become

One more memory

To remember me

For a lifetime come and gone

Goes on and on

When my memory fades

Think of me this way

It's my mind that's leaving me

It's not my heart

Definitely worth printing out and posting on the board at work. Thank you for posting this one. It makes you stop and think.

This is a really nice song. I came across it when I was researching for an Alzheimers Project.
