We too were once that girl

We too were once
That girl
With hope flowering
in her heart as
an embrace of possibility.

We too were once
That girl
Doodling a name
A thousand times over

in the margins of
the cash receipts journal.

We too were once
That girl
With love on her lips
ready to spring out
in the bitter winter cold
to smile into your eyes.

We too were once
That girl
Who hoped
and prayed
and believed
that life would be beautiful.

Whatever in the world happened to her?
