such a sweet girl

wanted to look after me

buy my clothes to fit

cook me fresh for tea

happy to keep me happy

sweet there in the night

always wanting for me

from me everything to give

& I loved the company

enjoyed the view

knew I could only take

having much less to give

than she wanted needed

asking me home after six

stop the hanging out

with the friends I knew

those cats over the years

the longer times

had worked to pull me through

& the longer I stayed

the more I could see

our paths diverging

where for her there

was a wanting of more

our paths to cross

in front of a priest maybe

cars houses soft babies

a dog sweet patch of lawn



than I had to give
