When I was...

Location

When I was four I loved my brother and he broke his arm

he screamed and fell and I didn't know what to do

so I gave him marshmallows

When I was seven I loved a doll and I cut its hair

it turned ugly and sad and I didn't know what to do

so I hid it away

When I was sixteen I loved a boy and he broke my heart

he kissed me and held me and I didn't know what to do

so I let him walk away

When I was seventeen I loved my friend and she became sick

she got worse and died and I didn't know what to do

so I wrote a eulogy

When I was eighteen I loved a God and I felt renewed

my heart grew bleak and gray and I didn't know what to do

so I prayed
