Today is ??????

Today is ??????

I open my eyes to another day,
quietly groaning, with nothing to say.
as there’s no one here to answer me.
I must get up, I need to wee.

Decisions are mounting, as I try to dress,
should I wear more, or might I need less?
Every day I get it wrong.
Bridget Jones knickers, or just a thong?

A nice tasty breakfast comes into my mind.
but all these treats, I have to find.
They won’t be where they ought to be,
I suppose I ate them last night for tea.

I know that  I have somewhere to go.
I’ll ask my friend, she will know.
I pick up the phone, I can do that,
but remember her number …. OH, there’s my hat.

So I sit and wait for a sign or a clue,
but my mind goes blank, as it often will do.
Then back it comes with a blinding flash,
I do remember something, and it’s not all trash.

I did what I had to, or so I have been told,
It seems that I am losing my mind, the plot, SO!!! I’m old ..
but tomorrow is another day,
“Must try harder “, I hear myself say.

Goodnight ..
