Emily's Poem

Your smile is sweet, gentle, and genuine,
I wish I could freeze it there

Your implicit trust and unharmed faith
I wish I could make it stay

Your eyes are not jaded, not cynical in any way
I wish I could keep them like that

Your utter happiness at being free
I want it to stay the same

Your Na´ve, childlike quality
Set me free from this prison

But how long before you become
Just another one of us?
