I Lost My Mind


I think I've lost some memory
since my precious boys were born;
I don't remember sleeping late
on a lazy Sunday morn.
I don't remember quiet dinners
with candlelight and wine,
Or getting up and ready for work
and making it there on time.
I don't remember summer days
just lounging on the beach,
And those memories of "girls' night out"
are somehow out of reach.
I don't remember long, warm baths
with bubbles and a good book,
Or my favorite TV program,
or a movie worth a look.
I can't remember all those things
I spent time on yesterday,
And I can't remember my life
being any other way.
But as I lay them down at night,
I smile at life this time;
I can't remember so much happiness,
Since the day I lost my mind.


  1. I really do not remember that there was a time without,
    Our precious Jessi, Levi, and Esther no doubt,
    It is hard to remember them not being,
    Me wishing for the life before I'm not seeing,
    When we went from two to five,
    It's made our life so much more alive,
    and it is this way I want it to be,
    Living life in both discord and harmony.
