To The Girl I Was
Today I saw a white daisy caught on the breeze, and it made me think of you. It floated above my head, with a missing petal and a broken stem. It was beautiful. It was free.
Today I glimpsed a pair of yellow converse through a window in the mall, and it made me think of you. I thought of the girl who had run through grassy meadows with sunshine on her feet. I wished I was her.
Today I looked up at a blue sky, and it made me think of you. You with your smiles that outshone the sun, and your laughter that chased away the darkest clouds. A summer day in the middle of winter.
I saw life today, and it made me think of you.
