Did I remember to tell you I loved you
Each time you went out the door
And hold you close for another sweet kiss?
My mind's not so clear anymore.
Did I remember to never let you forget
How precious our love was to me
Or how I missed you each time you were gone?
Sweet memories just keep haunting me.
Did I remember to keep all the promises
I made you on our wedding day?
Was I ever complacent or take you for granted
Or any of your trust betray?
Did I remember to consider your feelings
In all the decisions we made
And make your heart sing when we were together?
My memory is starting to fade.
Could I have done more that last fateful morning
When I tried to will your failing heart to beat?
Did I remember to let you go gently
Or selfishly, want to keep you with me?
Did I remember that true love lasts forever
Or wallow in the loneliness I find
In grieving so often for what might have been
As a lost love tiptoes through my mind?
