What Lila Wrote in Henry’s Yearbook

81ZtCRlRkHL

Henry – all the years I’ve known you
You have been my closest friend,
And through all the high school chaos
I have known I could depend

On your strange, erratic friendship
On the knife edge of your wit
To cut through the vines surrounding
School and life and – all of it

But, sometimes, I know you’re headstrong
And you think your life is set
But I’m sure you have no concept
Who you really are just yet

There’s a loving man inside you
Yes. That’s right. I said, “a man”
You think that there’s something lacking
But there’s not. I know you can

Be whoever you set out to.
Of all this I have no doubt.

Love,
your Lila –

who reminds you
That you’ve never asked her out
