The things I do for you
You stupid selfish man
The things I will do for you
You insufferable buffoon

It's hard for me to say this now
It's hard for me you to here this
But I love you
Even now

I'd spend a thousand years at
SAT prep class
To randomly dance with you in front of the class
I'd spend 24/7 365 in a history lecture
If you were their causing chaos with me
I'd re-read every volume of Tolstoy, Dickens, and Homer in existence if you were their making up funny voices for all of the characters

I miss you
I miss our last dance at prom
I miss our last kiss in the mall
I miss your laughter, your tears, your mouth, your nose, your hands, your heart

I would take a field trip to the art museum
if we could sneak away and explore the city together
I would volunteer every day at the hospital just to see you make someone laugh

I would do anything to relive those moments
But in your stupid selfishness you left me alone
You sweetly stupid man
Bitter, tired

I wanted to write about the feelings someone has when someone dear to them dies.
