It’s all right if you forget…….
Whether it is Monday or Wednesday
Why you went to the next room,
Where you left your keys.
It’s not all right if you forget……
That you have already had breakfast and ask for it again,
How to make a telephone call,
How to find your way around your home…
The names of your spouse or children,
Whether it is summer or winter
