Disclaimer: I don't own DragonballZ.

Author's note: This is my first DBZ poem that I've posted on fanfiction.net. It's written in the POV of Chichi about Goku. I don't why some people say that this show is nothing more than a display of male testosterone driven action (not to mention really hot guys). The relationships/romances in the series are very poignant, although they are not given much attention. That's just my opinion. Anyway, I'm not the best poet in the world, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Lament

With every smile you gave me,

You also brought tears.

Every battle you fought

Gave me the same fears.

You can make me cry,

You can make me shout,

And whenever you left,

I always wondered why

You could never stay.

Did you love me?

I don't know how

I could ever make you see

You're the only one for me.

All I ever wanted

Was to grow old with you.

But I've only grown old

Without you.
