I go to find something & it's not there
I look around & wonder where I left it
I think of the last time I saw it
But I can't remember.
My thoughts wander & I forget,
Not the names of my children,
Or what time I report to work,
But the dates they were born,
Or the days of the week I have to work.
My wife gets mad & yells at me that I need to remember
So I write stuff down, but lose the paper things are written on
I would give anything to get certain things back
Like my wedding ring, some baby pictures,
Or the slot machine payout for $435.
Are my hiding spots real or imagined?
I go to look one more time because it cant be anywhere else,
And it's still not there.
