Don't Grow Up


Don’t grow up
Although I know you have to
In life's ancient decree;
For if you grow up
Then I will be old
And I don’t want to be

Stay a while as a little one
Take in your learning
Of numbers and alphabet;
But don’t grow up
For I will become old
Don’t grow up - just yet

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
