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

there is nothing more painful than being in love with a person, that even though you know you'd still love them no matter how drastically they changed, you miss what they used to be.

This poem expresses a multitude of emotions. I feel as if there probably isn't a person who can't somehow relate to this in some way. I genuinely enjoyed reading this.

Old friend, ex-lover, lost family member... so many applications for the emotions in this. I'm so jealous of how you managed to concisely convey all of that. Great poem.

Short, but powerful. Sometimes people can give poems unnecessary length, but yours was perfect. On top of that, you mentioned no names, no specific events, and yet you still have about 800 people relating to it!

Being optimistic isn't always being happy. It's taking what the world throws at you and saying "I'm not gonna let this bring me down"!

This is truly amazing!
