A Remember-er

I am a remember-er of times long ago
A forgetter of many things having just happened
In addition, I keep thinking that tomorrow is today
And yesterday is actually today.
Things that happened in my life long past
Seem as fresh as right now
At times I know that something  
Having just happened will be forgotten
A short time from now.
I think to write things down
But forget what I was going to write about
Why bother though, cannot find paper anyway.
Wait! an idea has just popped into my head
Record what I want to remember on tape
Oh! Rats! now where did I put those batteries?
Perhaps its best I just give up
Surrender to the inevitable and not worry 
About remembering today 
And stick with remembering long ago yesterdays.
For that was a much easier, simpler time
And today, and tomorrow too
Are probably better off forgotten.
Ok! that decided! What was it I was trying to remember?
