James I Remember

When I was a little girl
You were my sworn enemy.
You were a boy
Boys had germs.
Boys played in the dirt
With trucks and transformers.
Did I mention that boys were gross?
But time changes everything.

I grew older and I realized
You were my best friend.
You taught me to climb trees
And you caught me when I fell.
You took Peanut Butter home
When my mom said I couldn'e keep her.
Did I mention that boys were nice?
But time changes everything.

I grew even older
You were my first crush.
You held my hand
And stole a kiss or two (or three).
You promised to take me to my first dance
And not let me dance with anyone but you.
Did I mention that boys were sweet?
But time changes everything.

A cruel twist of fate
Took you from me.
We never went to that dance
And you never held my hand again.
But I refuse to cry
You are somplace better than here
Where you will never hurt.
And for that I am greatful
It makes my hurt a little easier to bare.
