A Boy of 8

I sit and observe your face
me watching you
you watching the world
How new it all must be

Seeing your eyes light up
You smile at a joke you've heard 
for the first time
One ive heard long ago

I hear you converse about
what I say
dissecting what you hear
what you think I meant
when I said it

Oh to be 8 years old again
with no worries
Learning what it is to be
a boy of 8
while I watch you watching me
