last summer

Saw you 
in the crowd
in the show-her-off
got-a-girl crowd
I waved to you
a thank you wave
thank you for last summer

at the fair
by the water
after the movies
at the concert
drive home with my sister

she said she gets it
you're a good boy

so thank you for last summer

saw you
again
in the sad crowd
sorry-your-dad-died crowd
I shook your hand
said I want to meet your girl
I really want to thank her
for taking you
and you for taking her

thank you for last summer
all the inside jokes
about girl and boy points
stupidity

most of all
thank you
for not stealing my heart,
but leaving it in tact
so it was full
when I met my match

I'm happy for you
and that last summer is over
