Getting Older

The leaves change with fall

Yet I still remain the same

What will happen here?


Many years have passed

It may not seem like I have

But I have grown up


Where is my mother?

Is my father still around?

Where can I find them?


Still on the same street

That same house is still there too

But where are they now?


Move to the kitchen

Someone is there cooking now

Wait—is that my mom?


She is still herself

But she looks like someone else

So where have I been?


Kids—love your parents.

You must keep them close to you

Parents are like kids


The minute you leave

They’ll change and they’ll get older

I’m getting older,
