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.

The author's comments:
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

Great poem, I like the stanza "You fell out of my life, Just like leaves in the fall. We were so very close, Now you're not here at all."

I love this! I loved the "you've changed since last September" than when you said "I haven't changed since last September"

I have two favorite quotes:
'Remember it's just a bad day, not a bad life.'
'We were born to be real, not perfect.'

You & Me reminds me of my ex best friend. 'We were so very close, now you're not here at all' relates to the situation. She left me for someone popular. She changed. I didn't. Reading this poem made me cry as it reminded me of her as she left my side in the month of September. This is a really nice piece though!

This is exactly what I thought when reading this. It's crazy and indescribable how someone can change in a blink of an eye.

Everything good in life either makes you fat, an addict, or broke.

This reminds me of my ex boyfriend. He has changed so much, and it makes me sad that the person I loved no longer exists.

Same here. My best friend/boyfriend went to college three months ago. It's really sad that we were so close but now he's changed to where he no longer talks to me a lot and has better friends.

This poem reminds me of my old best friend and me. “I saw you today but not as I remember.” I saw my old best friend one day on the first day that I have not seen in over a year and he had changed so much, but I hadn’t changed at all.

I can relate to “You & Me” because it brings me back to the day of my Grandpa’s funeral, and how different he looked from the last time I saw him. The line “You were so full of life, Yet now you are so cold” stands out to me because he was lifeless (pale) and his body was cold, but my heart cried to match his heart beat one more time. Then, I remembered how he seen me last time, and how he would want to see me the day of his funeral.

The line that caught my attention from this poem was “You’ve changed since last September”. This line reminds me of my ex who constantly calls and tells me how I’ve changed since our break up in the month of September.

This poem makes me feel so sad......but this is the truth, isn't it? People change, and that's life, but it still hurts to no end. This is an amazing piece though, great job!
