Age has come to live in the mind,
Creating a fog o'er memories of you,
Making it harder to grasp and hold,
The mental picture of a love held true.
I can sense the nearness of your body,
The lingering scent of your cologne,
Though it is faint in my mind now,
I try to hold on but you've gone.
I lay my head upon my pillow and mourn,
Crying for the faded memories of my mind,
I have been faithful in remembering you,
Revisiting the moments of dear love entwined.
Sobs continually rake my frail body,
I pray to remember you just once more,
Lord let the faded memories become clear,
Giving treasured moments with the one I adore.
Let this mind bring forth in vivid detail,
Small images cherished for so long,
Let me have this just once again Lord,
Bring unto my heart remembrance song.
