To my friend

You say you don't like him But I already know You like him much more than you're willing to show I was there when you liked that baseball guy But you got too close so you said goodbye And I was there when you liked that unstable eighth grader but then he got drunk and said see you later What about the boy with the big brown eyes who came by my house then disappeared but why? There was that one guy with bleach blonde hair And after him I was still there But now you have found someone much more unique Someone who I can't really critique I feel as if you'll be ok Despite the facts that you repeatedly say I know he likes you And he lets you know So now is the time to let your emotions show I know you're ok with this older guy Because it's with him that you're never really shy It's ok if I leave you You must understand That I am leaving you in the palms of his loving hands And if it doesn't work out that's ok too Because don't worry I will come back for you And I will listen to you rant as you did me And comfort you while you cry as I did about he I will offer to drown out your sorrows with drinks And if you don't want to we can just sit and think We can talk about how better days will come About the shining moon and the bright glorious sun We can talk about art and the meaning of love Or about something small like when you lost your glove We can talk about big things like a reason to live Or thoughtful gifts that we want to give But I'm not gonna jump ahead too far into the next Because the time is now and I see how you text I know how you talk and you told me how you kiss and it seems to me that he would jump any abyss to meet you at the other side So it's time for you to take the ride You say you don't like him But I already know You like him much more than you're willing to show
