Here is the list that I didn't write down,
choosing instead to read it to you here
1. He was very smart, but not at all as smart
as he thought he was.
Bringing another woman home thinking I wasn't there,
pity about that.
2. He was so handsome, I mean really.
I mean stop traffic, waitresses dropping plates Good looking.
He was surprisingly humble.
Surprising until I spent a night in his bed.
3. He was kind and patient, and got me through a bad breakup.
He bought me jewlery and flowers.
Then he brought home cufflinks,
which was his last gift.
4. He was so funny and clever, and so well mannered.
My friends loved him, my mother loved him.
Unfortunately so did my brother.
That was awkward.
Then came you.
Not a moment too soon.
