A Lover From The Past - Poem by David Keig

I knew you'd have a fuller figure
But never thought that you'd be bigger
Than the side of any house
And me as skinny as a mouse
The intervening years it seems
Have dashed my hopes and killed my dreams
You used to see a lot of me
Now there's a lot of you to see.
