Summary

I wanted so badly to write a poem for all of my young booksie friends to honor them and to praise them and to thank them but I couldn't find words that were anywhere near as good as the ones of Cat Stevens in his amazing and beautiful song, "Oh Very Young". This is for you guys. I am so excited about your future. You know who you are.

Oh very young

What will you leave us this time?

You're only dancing on this earth

For a short while

And though your dreams may toss

And turn you now

They will vanish away

Like your daddy's best jeans

Denim blue fading up to the sky

And though you want him to last

Forever you know he never will

You know he never will

And the patches

Make the goodbye harder still.

-

Oh very young

What will you leave us this time?

There'll never be a better chance

To change your mind

And if you want this world

To see a better day

Will you carry

The words of love with you?

Will you ride

The great white bird into heaven?

And though you want to last

Forever you know you never will

You know you never will

And the goodbye

Makes the journey harder still.

-

Oh very young

What will you leave us this time?

You're only dancing on this earth

For a short while

Oh very young

What will you leave us this time?
