The boy you once were

The boy you once were

A Poem by sarah

The innocent affection that lived between us

I remember how much we cared for each other

The thought that no matter what happened nothing could break this

The mind set of two young kids

 

I cared for you

You cared for me

But it wasn't enough to save us

It wasn't strong enough to be mended

 

Now I see you standing there across the room

You have changed so much

Your not the young boy you once were

You are a man

 

I will always have those sweet sweet memories

Those long nights we talked on the phone

The times you so badly wanted to take my hand in yours

The sweet affection that everyone could see

 

All that will always live in the back of my mind

Even though we didn't make it

I sometimes see the young boy you once were

I see him appear in your smile

And in your laughter 

 

He will live forever in my memory 

Even though you are no longer that person 

That is the boy I will always love 

And I look forward to seeing him in your smile

Its really sweet and sad, how sweet is when one grow up, people changes, a lot. It seems we no longer know that person, and its such a horrible feeling! However, I will say its sweet more than sad, its the care and remembrance in your words.
i love it really much, its wrapped with a lot emotions, ad heart felt, touching, easy to be related.
Amazing!

A candid, if not sympathetic, procession of a teen’s course to adulthood. Great work!

a poignant snapshot of the dash through the curves of puberty that lead one into the long straightaway of life...we look back nostalgically but the race goes on!

The poem is very good. I like the story of friendship. The description brought back a time when friendship was magic and love was very good. I like the ending to your outstanding poem. Thank you.

This is a really good poem! It's sweet yet sad. I like how you say that he will forever be in your memory, and that you still see him in his smile and laughter, and that you look forward to seeing him in his smile. That's one of the best poems I have read! GREAT JOB! :)
