Things I Would Do To Help You

If you were never coming home again
I would hire someone to help find you
a sweet song form to sing while you
were out there not coming home again.
I would look for clues in the trees
watch how their branches moved
and examine the animals climbing up
or down the tree for signs of despair.
I would soothe the uninvited guests
walking in the courtyard with stories
of my adventures in Paris and stuff like that.
I would send you an email outlining my new
positive approach to life which involves
coffee and photos of puppies and jelly.
I would tell you to stay away from Ikea
if you're feeling the least bit shaky
about your own reality. But mostly
I would help you with the idea of
simply being lazy and letting it all hang out
for a few hours every day that you're here
with me facing the music. Good luck!
I'll be thinking of you.

every day that you're there, simply being lazy is a good day. LOL

i would hire someone to warm his/her cold feet on your thighs just so that you wouldn't miss my company at night. and i'd also ask this hired person to send you adorable babies laughing and kids biting each other with british accents and piglets in the rain to make you smile. i would.
