There was a girl who gave me a poem, and she gave permission to share it with you, and I want to do that because it explains about putting off and putting off and put-ting of ------especially putting off caring about people we really love. She wants to remain anonymous, but she calls the poem, “Things You Didn’t Do.” and she says this:


          Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and I dented it?

          I thought you’d kill me, but you didn’t.

          And remember the time I dragged you to the beach, and you said it would rain, and it did?

          I thought you’d say, “I told you so.” But you didn’t.

          Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make

                    you jealous, and you were?

          I thought you’d leave me, but you didn’t.

          Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?

          I thought you’d hit me, but you didn’t.

          And remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal

                    and you showed up in jeans?

          I thought you’d drop me, but you didn’t.

          Yes, there were lots of things you didn’t do.

          But you put up with me, and you loved me, and you protected me.

          There were lots of things I wanted to make up to you when you  returned

                     from Viet Nam.

          But you didn’t.
