Week 12: See Ya Later

from by John Brownell




I wasn't looking for a friend
But apparently you were
You would show up here every day
In the field while I work

You’d seem to wonder why
I don’t just up and fly
And leave this work behind me

I wasn't looking for a friend
But apparently you knew
She’s been gone for 3 years now
Or is it only 2?

You have no need for me
I used to chase you from the apple tree
But now it makes me smile to see you here again

When I look at you like I just wanna leave
You look back as if to say, “Just use your wings."

Silly bird

I wasn’t looking for a friend
But there you are
Looking at me like I’m dummy
As I get into my car

And say out loud, “I’ll see ya later”
