If I Forget

Memorize

Isaiah 65:17
New International Version (NIV)

New Heavens and a New Earth

17 “See, I will create
new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.


Memorize Me

A lot of folks would seem today
To have a memory loss
Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Make many squirm and toss

But I would pose another cause
That makes us all forget
There’s just too “dang” many things
To our memory we must commit

I mean, there’s a number that’s associated
With every blooming thing
And you better have them memorized
Or your life will be suffering

A driver’s license number
In my wallet where it hides
The sheriff might require it
Or to cash a check besides

If you’re 65 or older
Your Social Security number you cannot disregard
Your doctors nor insurance
Will treat you without that little card

Every doctor must bear witness
That the number is what I say
And if I give the least protest
They kick me out with a “Have a nice day!”

“Nice day? Oh sure, it’s just “peachy-keen!”
As in their lot my flat tire I try to repair
AAA says they’d come do the job
But my member number I was unable to share

And do not even dare to mention
Even with a fleeting breath
All the hundreds of computer passwords
That worry me to death

One logs me in, one logs me out
Another for every application I try to use
I know I typed the right one in
Why must it always refuse?

Please forgive me of my mental rant
I’ve very little in the way of an excuse
I’ve tried and tried to memorize
But it just seems to be no use

So I’ll just claim that I’m past my prime
And my memory needs exercise
Then have some oatmeal with my prunes
And see if perhaps my name, I can memorize?

Father,

Help me to remember Your word and Your ways for they are the path to paradise. Let me forget those things that bring me to anger and replace them with forgiveness. In forgiveness is virtue and the virtuous will see Your face. Thank You, Lord.


Oh! And just for fun…who remembers this old tune?
