Forgot

I keep forgetting
I forget to write
I forget to eat
I forget that
I forgot and
Keep on forgetting
They say it’s
Old age
How old do you have to be
To be old
I forgot
How old was my grandfather
When he died!
He was old
Definitely old but
Full of youth!
A youthful memory in
My old age.

How old do you have to be
To be old
I forgot.
