Just Being Kids - Poem by Ray Hansell

Walking through the day
You and I holding hands
Doing the best we can
In trying to understand

Exactly what love is
And what it's all about
Trying to figure out the rules
Trying to erase some doubts

Being all of fifteen years old
But, more confused than ever
Are we supposed to be doing more
With our new found endeavor?

It's not that we feel something is missing
But other friends keep asking
Have you guys done more than kissing?
Most times it's said in passing

We like each others company
We always have fun together
The way we both feel right now
We don't know how it could be better

Besides, we're both way too young
To think of doing anything more
The way we look at life right now
We're much too young to open loves door

Sure we hold hands when walking
We've come into each others life
But that does not mean for a second
That we plan on becoming husband and wife

The rest of our lives are in front of us
That's where it's going to stay
We would not do anything right now
That would ever take our futures away

    I love this poem very much.
    There is something to be said for the freshness and innocence of youth, when everything is pure and sincere and uncomplicated. When people genuinely appreciate each other, instead of using each other.
    A sweet poem of bygone days, evoking pleasant memories! Very well-written.
