BUT YOU DIDN'T

I looked at you the other day
I thought you'd see me but you didn't

I said "I love you" and waited for what you would say
I thought you'd hear me but you didn't

I asked you to come outside and play ball with me
I thought you'd follow me but you didn't

I drew a picture just for you to see
I thought you'd save it but you didn't

I made a fort for us back in the woods
I thought you'd camp with me but you didn't

I found some worms 'n such for fishing if we could
I thought you'd want to go but you didn't

I needed you just to talk to, my thoughts to share
I thought you'd want to but you didn't

I told you about the game hoping you'd be there
I thought you'd surely come but you didn't

I asked you to share my youth with me
I thought you'd want to but you couldn't

My country called me to war,
you asked me to come home safely
But I didn't.
