Sometimes the simplest way to say it is the best way.

But I Do.

I know
that you had a cat for 16 years
and it was your best friend for five
and you really don't like cats now
but I do.

And I know
that you had a red-haired girl for two years
and you loved her on the seaside
and you'll never get over your first love
but I will.

And I know
that all you do is lie around
and your motivation melted in the sun years ago
and your brain is filled with air
but mine's not.

And I know
that you're more serious than you wish
and you'll have frown line wrinkles when you're old and gray
and your heart is a little constricted from the wear of the years
but mine's not.

And I know
that you like to write
but it's only humorous stuff
and you don't understand my poetry, at all,
but I do,
I do.

  It takes you through series of times and that feel in itself exudes nostalgia.

I thought it was very well and simply constructed. My favorite stanza was the fourth one. I suppose I understand why Lucy and Anna thought this could be sad...but it's not exactly sad though.

  I'm not sure how this made me feel. It was like sad and then I'm not really sure. But that's not a bad thing. I love is when poetry confuses my emotions :P

And that's really all I have to say...
