the love and lost quartet - part three - over the years
hey danny, do you remember...
...dueling 'blind melon' acoustics
on your living room floor?
...falling asleep all afternoon
on the hammock, couch or floor?
...hanging out with yoko ono
at the lennon art show?
...painting murals in the school halls
they're still there, you know?
...our first-year anniversary
returning to the fall?
...driving your dad's car
in our underwear and your bra?
...spending spring break together
while your parents were at an out-of-town event?
...how we spent that entire week
in your bed, clothes scattered and bodies spent?
...night driving up to michigan
to help a friend in need?
...melanie was heartbroken
by eric's evil deed?
...graduation summer and how
we worked till we were sore?
...you for college ambitions
and i for something more?
...seven years later
returning to those muddy banks?
...me getting down on bended knee
ring extended and giving thanks?
...you smiled and listened
even crying as i spoke?
...my worst fearing coming true,
my voice finally broke?
...how ironic our love started
with a "yes", we watched it grow?
...how you broke my heart
with antonymous "no"?
...every little moment
of those past seven years?
...how it all went so well
but managed to end up in tears?
...how you held me so softly
laying in my arms that night?
...your way of apologizing
trying to make things right?
...i told you to keep the ring
as a token of our love in vain?
...you put it next to your heart
hanging from a golden chain?
...i stood next to you
at the terminal of your flight?
...i said "see you later"
and you said... "goodbye"?
