Teach the art of smearing lipstick & tousling hair strands Show bravery when letting go of roller coaster handlebars & hot palms Tell how to bask in the sun's warmth without burning how to receive love & neglect hurting Demonstrate the licking of wounds & healing of scars The intricacies of bars & arbitrary folk that fills them on a Monday night Comfort my tendons as they have tendencies to shuffle & laugh when confronted with respect Prepare for the cease of self discovery And my anguish that shall chase it's fingertips Empathise when my skin becomes tenuous and crumples like newspaper Eyes heavy with tales that reside on finger pressed lips In them, remember our time & say you're glad You grew up with me
