A Man, A Boy - Poem by Jessie Mahoney Bathis


Whenever you reminise on the past
Some how it ruins the future
I've tried to forget the past
But i'm afraid of the future
Help me find a way to lose him
So i have my whole heart to love you
I saw him today and remembered
Than I saw you & forgot
For months I loved him
And for months that's all I've wanted for you
Emptiness, pain & sorrow a boy made me feel
Love, happiness & beauty a man makes me feel
Hold me close & let me cry upon your shoulder
For that is the man that you are
You hold your head up high
As I walk by your side.
Help me forget the only who shattered my heart
It is you who i adore
I thought I loved that boy
But I love my man more
