Just a Boy

Just a Boy

A Poem by Lexi Richard

"He's just a boy" my friends would say
"not good enough for you"
I'd wipe my tears and nod my head,
but knew that was not the truth

To me, that boy was my sun
my world revolved around him
he'd keep me warm and light me up
even though he burned my skin

He was a smile, a laugh, a tear
a million thoughts in my mind 
to me he was not "just a boy"
but a love to leave behind

Take care,
