Do you remember?

Do you remember

That time I slipped up while speaking

and you laughed at me?

 

Well, I do

 

Do you remember

When I tripped and fell

and you didn’t help me up?

 

Well, I do

 

Do you remember

When I was finally passionate about something

and you very much weren’t?

 

Well, I do

 

Or the time

You found one of my weaknesses

and ignored my protests?

 

Well, I do

 

They may not have been important to you

But I cannot forget

All of the times you didn’t know that you wronged me

 

You may not remember

But they are etched into my mind

as things I should have changed about myself

and not things that you should have

 

I saw them as my own shortcomings

and not as yours

 

Do you remember

When you ridiculed my ability to play games

and forgot I hadn’t played them as much as you?

 

Well, I do

 

Do you remember

When you said you come back

and I begged you not to go?

 

Well, I do
