As we grew
I watched as you grew, How you turned into a man.
It seemed like yesterday that there were dry leaves in your hair.
I was there with you when you fell and scraped your knee.
I was on the ground next to you when we laughed and dreamed.
But lately something inside of me has changed.
I now see you in a new light.
What I see is someone I love.
When our fingers brush, I look away,
hoping you won’t see What I feel in my eyes.
I don’t want you to see the change I see in you.
At night, I fall asleep crying for the loss Of my childhood, Which is slowly peeling away from my body Leaving me bare and alone.
During the day Words are stumbling out of my mouth with no control.
