Do Not Ask Me to Remember
Do not ask me to remember,
Don’t try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you’re with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I’m confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold or curse or cry.
I can’t help the way I’m acting,
Can’t be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you,
That the best of me is gone,
Please don’t fail to stand beside me,
Love me ’til my life is done.
- Owen Darnell
1 You didn't die just recently,
You died some time ago.
Although your body stayed a while,
And didn't really know.
2 For you had got Alzheimer's,
You failed to comprehend.
Your body went on living.
But your mind had reached its end.
3 So we've already said, "Goodbye",
To the person that we knew.
The person that we truly loved,
The person that was, "You".
4 And so we meet again today,
To toast your bodies end.
For it was true and faithful,
Until right at the end.
5 And now, when we remember,
We'll think of all the rest.
We'll concentrate on earlier,
And remember all the best.
6 For in the real scheme of things,
Your illness wasn't long.
Compared to all the happiness,
You brought your whole life long.
7 We think of you as yesterday,
When you were fit and well.
And when we're asked about you,
It's those things that we'll tell.
8 And so we meet in remembrance,
Of a mind so fit and true.
We're here to pay our last respects
To say that, "We love you".
