I don't know about you, but I have a hope chest and in it are all of my treasured memories from growing up and on into my married life. I was packing it up today and going through all of it. I came across this box of poems that I wrote in junior high......and yes, I'm going to be a BIG DORK and share one with you! This is my homage to teenage love:
By Shannon the Teenager (probably 1987..ish)
The words we whispered quietly
on a moonlit night.
The promise that we live by
which seemed so very right.
Everything has been displaced,
the love has been upset.
And yet, there's a painful yerning
It seems I can't forget.
The plans we made are all erased
No more dreams of us together.
And now that we're apart,
Tell me, what happened to forever?
