“Puppy Love” express
I vaguely remember, the time when I was just little… and my older brother taught me how to write my name.
I remember being very proud of myself. My brother seemed proud of me too. And he told me that we could now play a game… a great, fun, NEW game. I eagerly and happily awaited his instructions. I would do just about anything my older brother told me to do when I was little. Something I grew out of, thankfully, but not before learning some lessons the hard way.

Tell me that you understand,
Even though you can’t.
Tell me I can count on you,

Even though it’s not okay.
Tell me that you love me so,
And that our love is true
I may not always say it back,
Even so, I do.
