Leaf

We were young
and vibrantly green
and we did not know the world

It was spring
and I only knew
you would never leave me

clouding my sight of you

We were forever
in that little space
where our fates entwined

Time has passed
and now I know
we are leaves.

Just like you did.

I see an artist trying desperately,
You see a failure
I see an someone special and brimming with potential,
You see a freak
I see a person content with what they have,
You see an outcast
I see a stressed mother holding on for her child,
You see a disgrace

I see an a broken heart yearning for love,
You see a wretch
I see myself and smile,
You see me and laugh
and jeer
and mock
and tease

But both of us can see
through your mask and fear.
I hope you can and will see
You’re exactly who you’re meant to be.

I know only death lasts. But dreams can also last forever.
