Have we grown?


Have we grown?


As I see you, I know,
Great changes manifest in sloth.
Not that this matters at all,
I just hoped that you’d grown.


We are of an age you know,
Where time waits for no man.
So lets not pretend to admire,
How progress became lost before.


I remembered a smiling shy girl,
Once so full of painful doubts.
Could I believe that undone,
Where your eyes opened to truth?


And me, am I better?
Larger than life or full of pride?
I go out into the cool evening,
Holding your hands, caring, warm.
