Just a Boy

Just a boy was I then with the heart of a man

Just a kiss we did share; just a flash in the pan

Just a moment did pass but a lifetime I felt

Just to feel her that close; just to watch the world melt


Just a boy with a dream that she filled for a time

Just a breath, just a word, just an instant; sublime

Just like a deer; frozen in the light of her eyes

I just stood there swimming as she skipped the goodbyes


Just a boy was I then but I felt fully grown

Just the touch of her lips and I sank like a stone

Just a kiss; Just a kiss; Just a glorious kiss

Just to feel her that close left me feeling like this


Just a boy, still nave, I did my best to play cool

Just a chance, come and went, now I feel like a fool

Just like a shooting star across the midnight skies

I just stood there, mid-wish, as she skipped the goodbyes


Just a boy was I then but I know better now

Just a flash, just a dream, just an unspoken vow

Just a moment did pass but a lifetime it seemed

Just to feel her that close; just to relive that dream

Author's Notes:
Been ages since I posted when this came to be I decided I'd post it. A bit contrived I suppose.

Thanks to Dennis for donating my membership! Glad to have a reason to come back and post!

I really like this.  However, for me there is no "Just a" . Everything has its purpose in life, if nothing more than giving a poet something to write about, a combining of ones thoughts into a single script,  The hidden meaning within you words shines like a sun filled mirror in ones eyes.
Great poem .... think I'll put it in my favorites
