I Love You by Rachel

In an age where innocence ran rampant
and love was divine
there you were
an icon of a life everyone desired
but one which had been long forgotten
I saw your smile in the days of youth
a never-ending crescent upon your chubby, childish face
I left you to your doings because they made you most happy
a quiet, carefree child
as you grew older, your aspect developed
until you became somewhat more than what you were
no longer frolicking through endless days of play
introspective, thinking hard on life
and the reason for yours
and you reached the point, as we all do
where you considered that maybe your life had no reason
I let you keep your thoughts
I didn't force them out of you
because I hated that when I was young, too
you grew into a lovely person
I began to truly enjoy your company
not as a child
but more as a sweet and naive adult
age began to set in
you became thoughtless, forgetful
but always smiling, wide across your wrinkled face
and I never stopped loving you
it was a sad day when they lowered you into the ground
a six-foot hole hardly seemed to do you justice
you deserved your playground again
to return to the innocent age
could youth last, the world would follow you
