Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most

Len, think I have lost mine also. Yesterday I could not understand why no liquid soap was coming out of container no matter how hard I pressed it. It turn out to be my electric toothbrush!!!! How sad is that??

Of All The Things I've Lost, I Miss My Mind The Most:

A funny phrase I heard long ago; I can now relate to those woes

Life won't slow down and I can't keep up; with work, the kids, the bills and such

I rush and rush and get no where; Here I still sit in this chair.

Looking for my pen, Where is my Pen?!; It's in my hand where it's been

It's Monday. What was I supposed to do?; A doctor's appointment? Dentist too?

Oh No I'm late, I must hurry!; Calm down, self, today is Sunday.

My spouse, my kids, they depend on me. I need my mind back, can't you see?

Turn back the clock to another time. Maybe that's where I'll find my mind.

I left it wandering, that's what I did. Daydreaming of when I was the kid.

No job, no boss, no bills, no strife! No responsibilities, Ah that was the life!

Now I have kids of my own ; a husband and a job, Hey, I'm all grown!

I take a breath and count to ten. Must put myself together again.

Kiss the kids goodnight - they chase away my sorrow.

Now I can relax and prepare for tomorrow.

I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart


I expect the mind will go next, so I won't care
