WHEN THE TIME COMES
Remember me as I was
not as I will be
when the time comes
when my mind and body fail
and I become
someone not knowing who I am
don’t let me be shut away
but remember the day
when I flourished and laughed
and loved you
remember me sometimes
but don’t feel sad
I live on through you.
