Never Aging

Once you were a twelve year old
One long gone sixth-grade year
And now you’re turning twenty –one
I see you greet it with great cheer

But always do remember
When in memory I delve
You’re still a sweet young kid to me
Forever you’ll be twelve

So when you post on Facebook
Or networks that there are
Pre-warn your teachers of your youth
Or our memories you’ll scar

Ken Goree

This is for a wonderful former student, who is very excited to be turning twenty-one.  I hope she takes it with the light-heartedness in which it is intended, and doesn’t curb her enthusiasm for life.  But still, I’ll always think of her as a sweet twelve-year-old girl.
