We see growing up
every day.
We lose,
we shed
our old skins of innocence, and
quickly,
too quickly,
we see reality.
Say good-bye softly.

Yet we are still children
just better at pretending,
We lose,
We shed
our untainted dreams,
our friendship with time,
our faith,
quickly,
too quickly,
we see reality.

It is impossible
to catch up in our shell.
From love everything
to
love one thing …
We lose,
we shed
too much.
Maturing
is quick,
a swift snatch.
We see reality.

Please don’t
say good-bye.
Don’t
say good-bye.
Say good-bye gently
