I Supported You
I held you up and showed you the world
And watched as your life unfurled.
I gave you legs on which you stood
And became the talk of the neighborhood.
You recorded seasons and our lives together
Then left me cold in the hot summer weather.
Now you are gone and we are through
I’m sure you’ve forgotten how I supported you.
