I once knew a girl in every way beautiful
Brimming with so much passion and potential
Bright green eyes deep full of meaning and sparkle
She showed her happiness with a dimple
When she smiled full of pleasure
She was so beautiful, this girl I remember
Bursting with laughter and good humor
Quick witted and truthful ‘twas rumored about her
With golden cheek and sun-streaked hair
Her skin was smooth and smile so fair
I knew this girl, we were good friends
I would tell her secrets with my pen
She always listened to stories mine
And knew the meaning between each line
“Never give up.” And “Take your time.”
So unafraid to speak her mind
Without fear of who might hear her
She believed in me when dreams were mine
For so she came to be defined
A dream herself, this friend of mine
So full of mystery and meaning
The future mine, she said, for seizing
I haven’t seen her for quite some time
Where did she go? I cannot find (her)
If she could but read this rhyme of mine
Would it sing? Could it remind her?
Would she listen as she did back then
To the story of my pen
And say hello to dreams again
This younger sister (self), my dear old friend
