When I was young,

A wise man said to me,

"How fair the flowers to the young, How fair the spring and summer,

How fair the sweetness and the pain Of growing up."

Yet I laughed and said to him,

"Oh to be grown and wise and free,

To know a life that's ours alone,

None to dictate or scold or keep,

 None to rule over our heart's desires.

How many summers passed since then!

And now that I am grown and wise and free,

 I miss the sweetness of the chains that bound me,

Only with love.

Hi! Friend, Gloria,
I loved your poem. My father and I were, unfortunately,not close . I was born out of wed-lock and he always thought that I was not his kid. Even though I was the oldest and first born, I don't remember ever feeling that the man loved me. Gradually over the years I have had to forgive him and I cried when he passed away. Nuff 'bout me... I wish you the best and continued success! Feel free to visit my site
