Originally I was going to call this “If mom could only speak”, however since most of her conversation these days is jumbled with non-sequiturs, Godbye Hello seemed a more fitting title. Apologies to Lennon and McCartney for kind of stealing their song title.

Goodbye Hello

Goodbye, hello who are you? And thanks for dropping by.
Excuse me as I stare at walls, I wish that I could die.

You tell me that I am not the same, imagine how I feel.
Trapped inside a body that can’t determine what is real.

Goodbye to all the ones I Love, with words I’ll never say.
Hello to all the life I lived, I slowly fade away.
Goodbye to conversation, Goodbye Hello because.
Hello to what I am today, Goodbye to what I was.

The Words to “I Am The Walrus”, now all make sense to me.
My thoughts and words cannot connect, that’s how it has to be.

Some say it’s dementia, some Alzheimer’s disease.
Frankly I am feeling fine, so many locks… no keys.

Goodbye to all the ones I Love, with words I’ll never say.
Hello to all the life I lived, I slowly fade away.
Goodbye to conversation, Goodbye Hello because.
Hello to what I am today, Goodbye to what I was.

I’m back in school, I drive a car, images meander.
You claim I just talk gibberish, as I hear perfect candor.

My eyes can’t see, my ears can’t hear but I am doing fine.
My wheel chair can’t reach the table, nurses help me dine.

Goodbye to all the ones I Love, with words I’ll never say.
Hello to all the life I lived, I slowly fade away.
Goodbye to conversation, Goodbye Hello because.
Hello to what I am today, Goodbye to what I was.

You tell me things I don’t recall, I just can’t place your face,
You’ve put me in this sterile home, and I don’t like this place.

Everything is working, well except my broken mind
You visit for a little while, but then I’m left behind.

Goodbye to all the ones I Love, with words I’ll never say.
Hello to all the life I lived, I slowly fade away.
Goodbye to conversation, Goodbye Hello because.
Hello to what I am today, Goodbye to what I was.

You sing me songs, I share a smile though I am not sure why.
Did I sing that song before and did it make me cry?

So don’t be sad each time you leave, I know a magic trick.
Cause when your gone, I sit alone and I don’t know I’m sick.

Goodbye to all the ones I Love, with words I’ll never say.
Hello to all the life I lived, I slowly fade away.
Goodbye to conversation, Goodbye Hello because.
Hello to what I am today, Goodbye to what I was.

Cue the Blong: Until I put this to music, Where Did I Go? is an homage to our older generation…
