A Little Mixed Up

A LITTLE MIXED UP
AUTHOR & SOURCE UNKNOWN

JUST A LIVE TO SAY I’M LIVING
THAT I’M NOT AMONG THE DEAD
THO I’M GETTING MORE FORGETFUL
AND MIXED UP IN THE HEAD.

FOR SOMETIMES I CAN’T REMEMBER
WHEN I STAND AT THE FOOT OF THE STAIR
IF I MUST GO UP FOR SOMETHING
OR I’VE JUST COKE DOWN PROM THERE.

AND BEFORE THE FRIG, SO OFTEN
MY POOR MIND IS FILLED WITH DOUBT,
HAVE I JUST PUT FOOD AWAY, OR
HAVE I COME TO TAKE SOME OUT?

AND THERE’S TIMES WHEN IT’S DARK OUTSIDE
WITH MY NIGHT CAP ON MY HEAD,
I DON’T KNOW IF I’M RETIRING
OR JUST GETTING OUT OF BED.

SO IF IT’S MY TURN TO WRITE YOU
THERE’S NO NEED IN GETTING SORE
I MAY THINK I HAVE WRITTEN
AND DON’T WANT TO BE A BORE.

SO REMEMBER–I DO LOVE YOU,
AND I WISH YOU WERE HERE,
BUT NOW, IT’S NEARLY MAIL TIME
SO I MUST SAY “GOOD-BYE, DEAR”.

THERE I STOOD BESIDE THE MAILBOX
WITH A FACE SO VERY RED
INSTEAD OF MAILING YOU MY LETTER,
I HAVE OPENED IT INSTEAD!!!
