I do what you ask
and yet it's never enough
I move mountains
you find fault in their lines
I turn water to wine
but it isn't merlot
I carry you on my back
and you say I'm too bony
I buy you cigarettes
but always the wrong brand
I can't move fast enough
to satisfy your need for now
yet you're always late
leaving me waiting
for hours
sometimes days.

I know that you're hurting
I know I'm your only friend
and yet sometimes
I stare at the horizon
just stare
wishing for something better
wishing for something more.
