What About Me?I figured it should be said
You took her in with no more than one question
With one answer
"How is she Ben, what do you think?"
"I do not like her, not at all."
The answer was replied swiftly and with ease
It was as if the situation had been mapped out years in advance
Leaving my defense lost in a trance
"Give her a try, please?"
It was another question
A question that would never be answered
At least not until it was too late
Only two weeks' warning
And not a chance to react
My seven year old brain was completely out of whack
With two weeks passed the church bells rang
The vows were exchanged
All were happy
All but one
How you didn't notice
Is beyond me
In not one picture will you find me smiling
You know I care about you
I want you to be happy
But what about me?
