I remember when you took your first step, and then you fell on the ground.

I taught you to tie your shoes. I remember that.

But, now that I see you there for the last time,

I wonder did I forget. Did I remember to tell you…?

I remember when you first drank water from a cup, and then spilled most of it on your shirt.

I taught you to eat with a spoon and not your hands. I remember that.

I remember when I taught you to dress yourself.

I taught you to comb your hair. Yes, I remember that!

I remember when you opened your first bank account.

I taught you to count. I remember that.

I remember teaching you to ride a bike.

I taught you to drive. I remember that.

I remember teaching you to say “Thank You” and “Please.”

I told you that I love you. Yes, I remember that!

But, now that I see you there for the last time,

I wonder did I forget. Did I remember to tell you…?

And as the pastor stands, now I remember…

My tears flow because I will miss you, but the tears have turned to sobbing,

As I see you there for the last time, and I wonder did I forget…

Did I remember to tell you that Jesus loves you…? Did I tell you how He died for you?

Did I teach you to pray to Him and that He rescues and He saves?

I taught you to tie your shoes. I remember that.

But, now that I see you there for the last time,

I wonder did I forget… Did I remember to tell you that?
