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.

My assessment is that whenever I see "sonnet", I know they're a true poet, and it never disappoints. Being a granny, I especially enjoyed this.

My grannies were as different as night is from day. I scarcely remember one, but thoughts of the other make me smile, as did your poem of memories, Emile. Thank you for writing this one and bringing a smile to my lips.
