Memory lane, where might that be?
It seems that I have lost my way
Forgotten times are long since past
How can it be, I’ve naught to say?
I can’t remember past my nose
I’ve come so far to fall behind
Starting to wonder who I am
If thoughts were eyesight, I’d be blind
It’s not fair that I’ve forgoten
Friends and loved ones all together
What’s happened I cannot recall
Ones who at my side do gather
I want to cry, but don’t know why
My mind just wandered off somewhere
So many gone in search of me
I’m lost in space, it’s just not fair
But now the nights grow longer still
Despair and hope may never meet
The possibility for me
My loved ones won’t admit defeat
