I’m Not Gonna Miss You by Glen Campbell

I’m still here, but yet I’m gone
I don’t play guitar or sing my songs
They never defined who I am
The man that loves you ’til the end

You’re the last person I will love
You’re the last face I will recall
And best of all, I’m not gonna miss you
Not gonna miss you

I’m never gonna hold you like I did
Or say I love you to the kids
You’re never gonna see it in my eyes
It’s not gonna hurt me when you cry

I’m never gonna know what you go through
All the things I say or do
All the hurt and all the pain
One thing selfishly remains

I’m not gonna miss you
I’m not gonna miss you

Wyman’s Note: Legendary singer and songwriter Glen Campbell wrote this song after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It is a reminder that dementia does not just affect the person suffering from it but all of their family and friends as well. When caring for a senior with dementia please remember this; approach and care for their loved ones with this in mind.
