Do you sit there and feel like
We are on top of the monkey bars?
Do you close your eyes
And feel my arms around you?
Do you play guitar and remember
How you tried (and failed) to teach me?
Do you hug your pillow at night
And think of how you held me?
Do you remember how bad I was when
You said you'd leave?
Do you feel guilty for promising to
Stay by my side in the darkness?
Because I've brought your monkey bars
Just to sit on them.
And close my eyes and remember the
way you wrapped your arms around me.
I lightly strum my guitar
And picture you doing the same.
I hug my pillow at night and
Try to remember you.
And how hard I cried when you said
That you were moving away.
And sit by the phone every night
Waiting for you to return to me.
