Lest We Forget

Home / Voices and Visions / Lest We Forget

by Robert Schneider


A severe head injury will often cause you

To forget important things,

Like exactly who and what you are

Or how to drive that family car;

How to walk and how to talk

Even when to go or when to balk!

How to eat and when to sleep

Or how to laugh and when to weep;

How to read and how to write

How to have fun or even ride a bike.

How to recognize the beautiful white dove

Or how to miss and kiss goodbye the ones you love.

How to work and how to play

Probably even the name of the day.

One thing that you can never forget,

Is just what it was, that made you like that.
