A quick piece written for a lovely woman whose heart was just too big to love me the way I needed. I also think she lived in another country.
You had me at “Hello.”
Then you lost me at “wrong number.”
Then I swear I HAD YOU at “but I think you called ME.”
I felt we were having our first fight at “Sir, please don’t waste my time on the phone like this.”
Then I honestly didn’t know where I was.
You knew it didn’t matter who was at fault as you sighed, exasperated.
You had me a thousand times over when you put your dad on the line and called him “your manager.”
I think I had HIM at “I would like to marry your daughter.”
We all had each other when the three of us felt comfortable to just sit in silence.
Then you had me again at “all premium channels free for 3 months.”
