1. Don't Forget

 

Hello, Grandma

It's me again,

I was here with you yesterday.

 

I meet your eyes

Then watch your lips

I see the question forming

Please Grandma, don't

Don't forget my face.

 

I hear the glass as it shatters,

From deep within your brain

Your memory of me is falling away,

You cant remember your grandaughter's name

Please Grandma, don't

Don't forget my face.

 

Right from the beginning ,we  were close:

I had you, I loved you,

But now, Iv'e lost you

Lost you to age and time

Please Grandma, don't

Don't forget my face.

 

As I look at you 

I can't believe,

What time has really done

He's turned you from Grandma to questioner:

Whats this? What's that?

Who are you ?

Please Grandma, don't

Don't forget my face.

 

It's taking me a long long time

But we're  figuring this out.

After everything that's happened to us

I'm seeing the sense Iv'e been missing.

 

I feel bad that I made this

All about me

You are in this too.

 

That is why

I want you to know

 You are  still my  grandma

Even though

 

You forget my face.
