Because of you,

I learned to laugh

At myself.

A little,

Anyway.

 

Because of you,

I realized

That the little chalk line

Between parent and friend can be easily smudged.

 

Because of you,

I have to try

To face my problems alone.

 

Because of you,

I honestly thought I’d rather die

Than not have you around.

 

Because of you,

I had to find

Something else to do

On Wednesday nights.

 

Because of you,

I won’t get to see an adult

Challenge my teachers

Just for fun.

 

Because of you, I now know

What a dead person looks like

Way up close.

 

Because of you,

I spend way too much time

Thinking about what you’ll miss.

 

Because of you,

I figured out the literal definition

Of working yourself to death.
