Soft, Goofy, 12-Year-Old Joy

Soft, Goofy, 12-Year-Old Joy

A Poem by Zachary Jude

written 11/10/19


Soft, goofy, 12-year-old joy

That's what I loved most about you

You lit up any room you came in

"Hi!" you'd say with an innocent grin


Soft, goofy, 12-year-old joy

That's what I miss most about you

I miss those warm, loving, shining eyes

And those arms that greet me, squeezing tight


What if my next lover doesn't have it?

That soft, goofy, 12-year-old joy

The kind that spurns giggles and fun

And makes me fall harder and deeper in love


What if he doesn't like the same jokes

Or have a goofy laugh

Or yearn for my cuddles

Like when you were my other half?


Dear God, please let me find

Someone like that again

Another happy, caring, loving boy

With a soft, goofy, 12-year-old joy
