by Melina Smith 


where did she come from?

the sunlight kissed her soft red cheeks

as she danced around the front yard

her snow white dress grazed the dirt

as it moved effortlessly about her frail body

why is she back?

she looks just as i had always remembered her

yet somehow older, perhaps as old as me

as if her spirit continued to grow and mature

though she was but a girl when she left us
