Too Young

You showed interest in me

And seemed to care

Right when I felt

There was no one there

And I will forever be

Owing you some glory

For having the nerve

To listen to my story

Even though you left

You’re still in my heart

After helping me

To make a fresh start

I still will thank you today

For all that you did

I realize now

You were just a kid

Too young then

To be a part of my life

Too timid to handle

My pain and strife

But I’ll always miss your guidance

Beyond your years

You had a way

Of taming my fears
