Too Young

You were such a young man,
With the best of life in your grasp.
I was barely a boy,
Too young to share a man's secrets.
With the best of life in your grasp,
But you quickly slipped away,
Too young to share a man's secrets.
I wish you were here today,
But you quickly slipped away.
I was barely a boy.
I wish you were here today,
You were such a young man.
