I Didn't Think About You Once Today

I didn’t think about you once today,
For the first time since I met you.
I woke up this morning,
And didn’t check my phone,
No longer hoping that your name
Would be flashed across my screen.

I didn’t think about you once today.
I got dressed without wondering if
You would like this shirt or not.
I brushed my hair without remembering
How you used to run your fingers through it.

I didn’t think about you once today,
And my heart didn’t jump
When I caught a glimpse of someone in the hall
Who had the same haircut as you.

I didn’t think about you once today.
I drove past a red Chevy pick up truck after school,
But didn’t look to see if it was you driving.
I drove past your house,
But didn’t even turn my head in your direction.

I didn’t think about you once today.
Our song came on at the gym,
But I just kept on running to the beat,
Memories didn’t come flooding in,
That would normally sweep me off my feet.

I didn’t think about you once today.
I washed my hair in the shower
And didn’t think about how you
Love the way my shampoo smells.

I didn’t think about you once today.
And as I drifted off to sleep,
This realization hit me.
By not thinking about you once today,
I have begun to think about me.
