it is the first of april, i had it in my mind to do a parody of prince's "sometimes it snows in april" for simon, and it's snowing today. his brothers, especially theodore, were picky regarding food - sometimes i would try another kind to see if they'd eat out of the bowl instead of being hand-fed. i now know that diet, or a change of diet, causes pancreatitis. i'm not sure about acute, though.

this may be my last song for simon, but i thought "can't cry anymore" would have been. i just feel like this is the song to close the "songs for simon" chapter with.

simon died soon after the doc cost twenty-four
hundred, sure my dimes can't change these past years
my guess, i fed him wrong and his stomach wore
a whole lot, and it's wronged by the food he'd get here

i used to smile at simon cuz he was kind, wholehearted
he liked it all - so glad and friendly-made
i do still cry for simon cuz i want to see him again
oh, fuck life - fuck life - life ain't ever worth pain

sometimes it snows in april
sometimes i feel so bad
sometimes i wish my life was never conceived
cuz then nothing could make me this sad

springtime was always my favorite time of year
a time for puppies going out for a change
this springtime only reminds of love simon'd bring
oh, i cried for months - mem'ries cry today

he knew a playful heart love had made
he's dying at eight, and his death had left me hypnotized
oh, staring at his pictures i need to cry
no puppy dies at eight, i made him die

sometimes it snows in april
sometimes i feel so bad
sometimes i wish my life was never conceived
cuz then nothing could make me this sad

i got a dream from heaven and it told me simon's there
it told that he was soundly laid to rest
maybe right now, i'll master the art of letting go
maybe one day i'll see my simon again

sometimes it snows in april
sometimes i feel so bad
sometimes i wish my life was never conceived
cuz then nothing could make me this sad

then nothing could make me this sad
cuz love isn't some...thing that i'd have
