The person you knew
AaHarvey

The person you knew
 1
 
 
 
 
In death they have found immortality;
 2
Endlessly youthful they shall become in your mind’s eye.
 3
When you have aged they still shall be,
 4
The person you knew, so young and carefree;
 5
With the face of your child.
 6
 
 
 
 
Time shall not age them for they are no more;
 7
The beauty of their youth shall never be changed by this world.
 8
Your memory of them will keep them forever young.
 9
The person you knew; the daughter or son.
 10
 
 
 
 
When death comes to take you from this land we live upon,
 11
You shall be reunited with those you love;
 12
The ones you have never forgotten.
 13
As the life drains from you and you are motionless beneath the sun;
 14
The person you knew will come to collect you and take you to Heaven.
 15
 
 
 
 
They will still look like the child you lost;
 16
The picture of a son you could never lose.
 17
The memory of a daughter so beautiful and so soft;
 18
The person you knew is now back here with you.
