Back in the day
You and I stood in the rain one night
Across from a building on University Place
Stalking your ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend
You just wanted a glimpse
Of that bitch.
You offered me my first joint
In some random bar in the village
I played it cool but declined
Making Nancy Reagan proud.
You asked me to be a bridesmaid
At your wedding in Vegas
I agreed, but then begged out
Awkward and scared I wouldn’t know how to act
Like the other girls.
We get together often now
You have two daughters
You used to say you’d never have children
And I laugh at that thought.
I haven’t changed one bit since that night in the rain
Timid and a straight up Dudley do-right
You have moved remarkably with time
And I have stood still.
