You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

I saw you today,
But you're not as I remember.
Your eyes no longer sparkle,
You've changed since last September.

You were so full of life,
Yet now you are so cold.
Your personality has tarnished,
When you once had a heart of gold.

You fell out of my life,
Just like leaves in the fall.
We were so very close,
Now you're not here at all.

You saw me today,
I'm the same as you remember.
My eyes still sparkle,
I've not changed since last September.

Isn't it so sad when you see an old friend and their whole personality and outlook on life has changed...and not for the good. Well that's what inspired me for this poem...I hope you enjoyed it

I can relate to “You & Me” because it brings me back to the day of my Grandpa’s funeral, and how different he looked from the last time I saw him. The line “You were so full of life, Yet now you are so cold” stands out to me because he was lifeless (pale) and his body was cold, but my heart cried to match his heart beat one more time. Then, I remembered how he seen me last time, and how he would want to see me the day of his funeral.

The line that caught my attention from this poem was “You’ve changed since last September”. This line reminds me of my ex who constantly calls and tells me how I’ve changed since our break up in the month of September.

This poem makes me feel so sad......but this is the truth, isn't it? People change, and that's life, but it still hurts to no end. This is an amazing piece though, great job!

Gorgeous, simply so well written. The sadness from this experience seeps through the words. Any of use who can relate immediately fell in love with this piece. Again, an amazing piece.
