Remember the time, the first time you said hi to me?
Remember the first time I texted you, aimed you, called you?
Remember the very first time our hands touched?

As we gently touched each other’s hands and held them for awhile.

It felt like eternity, it felt happy, it felt extraordinary.
Remember the times we would hug, hug for so long?
Remember the time I and you said “I love you”
Remember the time when you were called, or I called you strawberry?
What happen to the things you said and felt for me Ms. Strawberry?
Remember the poem I wrote “Built To Last”?
Remember these things?
Remember the great times and the not so great times?

Remember the time I said, “I control my destiny”
Well I learned that I do.
But I also learned that.
Sometimes things won’t always go my way.
What I’m saying is that
I never wanted our relationship/friendship to end.
But it did, somehow

So, I don’t know if you have a boyfriend
But if you do, I hope the best for you
And he better treat you right
Because I love you that much
And I don’t want you to get hurt
And if I hurt you before,
I truly am sorry.
Now for you
