So sweet of you

Yesterday I came across this beautiful, touching and extremely moving poem “But You Didn’t”. Thought I should at least try to replicate one element of it...
I still remember the day…
     We were playing with our toy aeroplanes
     Mine broke, crashed in a tree
     You handed me yours, said,
    “You like it much more than me”
That was so sweet of you!

I still remember the day…
     It was prom night and your ankle was sprained
     Yet you came, you danced with me
     and with your one-legged funny dance
     filled the ballroom with glee
That was so sweet of you!

I still remember the day…
     When I joined aviation school,
     Ma said “girls shouldn’t fly”
     Pa said “be careful, my doll”
     You? You gifted me that toy plane!
That was so sweet of you!

I still remember the day…
     You said, “you always taught me
     how to look at the bright side.
     Today I ask from bottom of the heart,
     will you be mine, be my bride?”
     and you proposed to me a with a sunflower!
That was so sweet of you!

I still remember the day…
     You were diagnosed
     with high blood sugar
     And I with cannibalistic tendencies
     For the one last time,
That was so sweet of you!
One of the aspects of that poem I really liked was its twist ending. Well, I can only pipe-dream of writing such moving and touching content, but I thought I could at least give the twist-ending a try.

Sometimes cyanide and happiness tends to be too gross and intolerable, but it would be a lie if I deny liking some of it and getting inspired! ;)
