Why don’t you write something telling about me
Or take down that picture from your wall?
Why not email me one lazy night
Just before dawn, in Fall?
Why don’t you kill the substance with circumstance
Then just let the feelings flow?
Take a night off to reminisce about the past
Just before dawn, during the snow?
Why don’t you take me as seriously as you do everyone else
Or take me out to have some fun?
Smile at me across the table
Just after dawn, in the full morning sun?
