poetry by j matthew waters

when the world was young

we walked along the boulevard
hand in hand
as if newly in love
enjoying the sunshine
and freshly cut grass

it seemed we were alone
in the universe
and all eyes stopped and stared
jealous of the way
we walked upon the air

as we faded into the dying sun
everyone noticed
how brightly we shined
once upon a time
when the world was young

august two thousand thirteen

  1. How sweet, and so true – that moment is so fleeting!! 😀

  2. lovely. Time and age take away so many things..for the youth, it is the loss of childhood, for those in their twenties, it is the loss of teenage and so on…
