From A Child

Do you recall
The first time you set eyes on me?

Those eyes were moist
Your hands quivered
Your skin was cold

You were overjoyed
excited
astonished

You told me you loved me
You told me I was perfect
You told me you would never let me go

You muttered sweet words in my ears
And caressed me softly
You kissed my cheek

I fell in love with you
I had been in love with you
even before I knew you

Then...

I have grown up a little
became a little more me
became a little more willful

I contest you
I scream
I get angry and emotional

Yet...

I am still the same person
I still love you just the same as I did that first day

Do you?
