He could no longer remember us.
The disease locking away his memories.
He no longer remembers the stories he once told me.
The stories that made me smile.
The stories we all remember, all of us but him.

He was fading from this world,
his soul leaving the earth forever.
The earth that holds his home,
His home filled with family.

The family that loves him,
The family that remembers his stories.
The stories that he no longer remembers.

The stories that made me smile,
The stories we all remember.
The stories that I tell for him.
