Ugh! I think my heart is broken as much as either of theirs!
I just watched my daughter break up w/her bf (IM no less!). (By the way, they're 14 & they didn't go "out" but a couple times & hung out at school...but still! He really liked her, she just wasn't feeling that bf/gf feeling...you know...?) Ugh...I have too many more years of this!

My gut tightens a
As I watch them exchange words
She types, He types
(I think, "this just isn't what he deserves")

She says it has to be "done"
He says "whatever's best"
She says "I'm sorry"
He says "forget it"

She looks to me
"What more should I say"
I tell her, "please be gentle"
(I hate to watch it end this way)

She types "I like you,
It's not like I hate you"
There's a long pause , an eternity!
Then he types "what can I do?"

She sighs, looks at me
I shake my head
I can't stand to watch
(This teen drama I dread)

I remind her
"Please remember how you would feel,
If this were turned around
If you were on the other end of this deal"

She thinks for a moment
Then starts typing again
She types "I still like you, but
I just want to be friends"

My gut tightens more!
Finally his response is sent
"But i luv u...?" he types
Then his ‘session' ends...
