Its been three years since I wrote this poem. Actually, I decided to post it here in my WordPress site, because I started compiling my old poems from my Multiply Site, which I plan to deactivate next year.
I learned a lot, from the guy of sixteen
from the moment he entered my life’s silverscreen
His stories, nice, both from here and afar
While mine were daydreams and wishing upon a star
He taught me to calm, this playful heart of mine
With his corny jokes ev’rything turned out fine
Whenever I’m down, he would share his smile
And i find my afternoons seemingly worthwhile
But then there were times, I felt he was ‘cold’
Simply telling me– emotions must not hold
Because he’s not mine, yes, not mine alone
And I say this, my friends, in a contented tone.
Time would come, that he must too, go away
Like the summer sun, it must shine another day
I do not know when, I do not know how
But i am very sure to say
That this guy of sixteen became a close one to me.. today.
