One year ago

You told me how we could be together

You & I


It was fairly simple


Till we each

Find that perfect partner

More willing

To share our lives

Yes, till that time,

You said

When she changes her mind

And when I find that someone special

You said we could

Be together

You & I


My refusal

To be this

Stop-gap measure

For pleasure

Shook you up


I cried all night


You said you were sorry

The next morning

And I forgave you

Not quite understanding how I could
