When you learn to say goodbye as a kid
That's when you really start to live

You won't forget
The womb and how it hurt to leave
Your first tooth swallowed accidentally
Pets bounding and abounding and rebounding around for a while
School's bell before break on a bright summer sky
Friends moving away and you don't know
Why you went through a heartbreak or two
Waked to different love high-sighed
Parents in the first rows of a twin-ringed day
The home you grew up in as you drive away
Sighing again once with someone else
Returning to your new house already alone
Your kid and your other didn't leave a new number
Twelve-pack rings hollow and you need a new one
Mom has cancer and two years
Dad grows old and quiet though he always was
The ex ends herself
All the photos on your shelf

I'm still a kid
