These are only a few lines
To tell you I’m still alive
I am not yet among the dead
Although my memory fails
And I find myself confused…

I got used to my arthritis
to my dentures I am resigned
I handle my bifocals well, but …
Oh my! I do miss my mind.

And sometimes I don’t remember
When suddenly I find myself
at the foot of the stairs,
If I must go up for something
Or did I just get down

And in front of the open refrigerator
I wonder if I just placed
That food I see
Or if I came to look for it

And when it gets dark and
In my nightgown I see me
I don’t know if I should go to bed
Or if it’s going time to get up

So if your letters I don’t answer
Don’t be offended, please.
I can think that I already did
And I don’t want to repeat
Over and over the story
For fear of boring.

Remember dear that I love you,
I would like to see you here!
But the postman is coming
And I say goodbye to you.

I stood in front of the mailbox
And suddenly I was surprised
seeing me standing there…
Instead of posting this letter
I opened it and read it!
