and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Tears in your eyes reflect pain hidden there
recalling your youth and a world more kind.
And a sadness fills your heart with despair
as memories replay within your mind.
The truth's apparent, endorsed by old age,
so hold my hand and let me calm your fears.
For though life's book approaches the last page
there is no need for worry or sad tears.
I knew you in my youth when just a boy
you entered my life as a friend back then.
And amidst innocence and youthful joy
you helped a boy enter the world of men.
Look deep into my eyes granny and see
that as long as I live, you’ll live in me.
