Wondering just how much I can remember,
I find my memory has failed me. Is it just
That it may be because that’s how it is
To be? It is said one’s life is laid out by a
Higher power step by step. Does that not
Bring one to wonder? If that is so, maybe
It’s meant to be that one and all of us make
Self-judgment calls on our decisions
Right or wrong. Does this nullify Gods edict?
I think not, granting God is the higher power.
In allowing us to decide right from wrong
And act accordingly, we have thinking power.
That brings me back to the title of my write.
While I think about the present and all I do,
And entertain self-judgment in my mind, the
Past bothers me a bit just here and there.
What have I done to thwart my God’s wishes
That might prevent me from entering the
Golden Gate to Heaven and the Lord.
If my memory fails me, what can I say?
Well, I will bank on a forgiving God and
Say, Lord, I forgot.
