Hang up the phone.
Watch your favorite movie.
Go out with friends.
These are a few of your favorite things.
Pretend like everything's fine.
Pretend like it didn't happen, you didn't hear.
Pretend... that it is yesterday.
In your mind, travel with your
Best Friend
To the time when you had that party,
and they threw you in the pool.
To when you both were caught,
for that gorilla incident.
Travel in your mind to your graduation
And the shaving cream they sprayed you with afterwards.
Travel to their room as you remembered it,
Posters and secrets and gifts
Passed between you two.
Travel to their new room, their new bed
And see them sleeping.
Now use your imagination
and pretend
That they're not really dead.
