Lauren called: she told that she missed
The time we spent together, and the way
We used to text each other through the day,
And all the things that used to get me pissed
(Like how I’d rant on traffic and what-not)
And then she paused, and said to me “Guess what?
I’m pregnant, and I’m going to have a boy.”
“I said that’s great. Congrats! I didn’t know –”
“… that I was seeing anyone. I wasn’t.
This happened, and I’m giving it a go -”
“I’m happy for you, Lauren. That is great.
A little boy – now, I can hardly wait.”
She said, “I wish –” then said but one thing more:
“I’ll see you ’round.” Then I said, “Yeah. For sure.”
