Little Jesse

Little Jesse was only 5
When I met him for the first time
We became fast friends that day
Outside playing on th slide.
Never would I have guessed
What would happen
To our innocent little selves.

Little Jesse was only 10
When I first told him my plan
We decided to grow up
and have the same job.
Never would I have guessed
What would become
Of our childish plan.

Little Jesse was only 18
When I first made up my mind
I dropped out
and he followed of course.
Never would I have guessed
What would become
Of our foolish decision.

Little Jesse was only 19
When I signed that dotted line
With him right there signing along.
Never would I have guessed
What I would have to sacrifice
Because of our choice.

Little Jesse was only 21
When we were first shipped out
With our bags over our shoulders.
Never would I have guessed
What would become
Of our lives.

Little Jesse was only 23
When the bullet went through him that day
With his last breath, he told me he loved me.
Never would I have guessed
That I would loose
my best friend and only love.

Little Jesse should have been 60
With this up coming fall
And I should be right by his side.
Never would I have guessed
That I would never love another
Like little Jesse.
He stole my heart
And has yet to return it
But I don't think I want him too.
