On Vacation in Florida

On Vacation in Florida

Thirty pounds and
Fifty years ago …

The eyes that smile
At me from the
Photograph ~
Are full of innocence
And trust ~
The girl I see is
Eager to try her wings ~
In this brand new
Grown-up life ~

Head full of plans
And ideas and
Yearning for love ~
Totally blind to
The years between
Then and now ~

With a tender finger
I trace the cheek
Of this younger me ~
And wonder ~
What the next fifty years
Will bring ~
