I’m Not Gonna Miss You

This video is a tribute to superstar Glen Campbell. See him share the Alzheimer's journey with his intensely beautifully Alzheimer's song. (Video)

“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,” Glen Campbell sings in this poignant, beautiful song about his Alzheimer’s. Listen.

Read all the lyrics below.

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.

By Glen Campbell & Julian Raymond

I’m Not Gonna Miss You” is track #8 on the album, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.

There are non drug options that can stop and reverse the progression.

How lovely that you've come to spruik an unproven product for your own profit. Nothing like taking advantage of the fears and suffering of those with an incurable and irreversible disease. Well done Marvin.

Double blind scientifically valid evidence, or move along.

Beautiful and sad. I have seen so many fade away from the ravages of this horrible disease and the devastation it leaves in its wake.

There is no cure for dementia Ravi the medication supposedly slows progression if taken early nothing more. This article is about a heartfelt, emotional song about a devastating journey.

No cure, read and study about it. Love your family member and make each new day the best for them that is possible.

Great post, songs help us to cope with the troubles that happen in our lives, so it’s best to turn on your favorite song and enjoy, but it also happens that your favorite TV series that you watch on a streaming platform helps the best, It’s also very cool and gives you some energy, charges you for new achievements and helps you get rid of bad thoughts or situations that happened to you during the day, so it’s all cool if it only helps people with their problems.
