I came across this poem, it says anonymous but when I tried researching it further it came up with all different stories so I have yet to find out who actually wrote it.

Things You Didn't Do

Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and I dented it?
I thought you'd kill me, but you didn't.

And remember the time I dragged you to the beach and you said it would rain and it did?
I thought you'd say, 'I told you so.' But you didn't.

Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you jealous, and you were?
I thought you'd leave me, but you didn't.

Do you remember the time that I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?
I thought you'd hit me.
But you didn't.

And remember the time I forgot to tell you that the dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?
I thought you'd drop me, but you didn't.

Yes, there were lots of things you didn't do,
But you put up with me, and you loved me, and you protected me.
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to you when you returned from Vietnam.

But you didn't.

Yeah....gotta say that it's not that beautiful in my mind. It's maudlin and the line about "I thought you'd hit me" hmm it's all badly written. Sorry!

Beautiful??

Nope. It's crap. And the relationship described sounds terrible.

Haha fair enough!

No need to say sorry, everyone is entitled to their opinion :-)
