The person you knew

The person you knew

A Poem by Aa Harvey

The person you knew

 

 

In death they have found immortality;

Endlessly youthful they shall become in your mind’s eye.

When you have aged they still shall be,

The person you knew, so young and carefree;

With the face of your child.

 

 

Time shall not age them for they are no more;

The beauty of their youth shall never be changed by this world.

Your memory of them will keep them forever young.

The person you knew; the daughter or son.

 

 

When death comes to take you from this land we live upon,

You shall be reunited with those you love;

The ones you have never forgotten.

As the life drains from you and you are motionless beneath the sun;

The person you knew will come to collect you and take you to Heaven.

 

 

They will still look like the child you lost;

The picture of a son you could never lose.

The memory of a daughter so beautiful and so soft;

The person you knew is now back here with you.
