Hey Mom

By Emily

Hey Mom -- we need to talk.
We can stay here or go for a walk.
Either way the news is the same,
I've discovered I'm in love with a dame!
It's really great!!
I asked her out and last night we had a date.
It was really fun.
Wait! Where are you going? I'm not done!
Mom? Are you OK?
Does it bother you that I'm gay?
Oh please, please don't cry
I swear I'll just die.
Give her a chance
There's more to this than a one week romance.
Smile and look at me --
I've never been this happy!!
