Explain

When did you lose me?

Was it like a tooth? 

As you bit into your first apple? 

Was it like virginity?

Haphazardly rushed after prom night?

Were you glad and proud because you're growing up?


Where did you lose me? 

Was it like your wallet? 

As it fell out of a taxi?

Was it like cell service? 

In a town with few roads?

Were you irked by such utter inconvenience? 


How did you lose me? 

Was it like a child?

Suddenly out of sight at a park?

Was it like memories?

Removed from old minds by dementia? 

Will you pray for a return? What else will you live for?


Why did you lose me?
