The things you didn't do
Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and I dented it?
I thought you'd kill me, but you didn't. And remember the time I
dragged you to the beach and you said it would rain and it did?
I thought you'd say "I told you so", but you didn't. Do you
remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you
jealous, and you were? I thought you'd leave me, but you didn't.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your
car rug? I thought you'd hit me, but you didn't. And remember
the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal and you
showed up in jeans? I thought you'd drop me, but you didn't.
Yes there were lots of things you didn't do. But, you put up
with me, and you loved me, and you protected me. There were lots
of things I wanted to make up to you when you returned from Vietnam.
But you didn't!
