Girl Returning

All you girls
Ruling your worlds
Dancing past curfew
Without a care

You know you are
Who your mother once was
Flirt, Free--the Possible Me!
Her dance floor grave parties on

Two souls double dutching the same
Potential of Youth
Actuality over time
Bracketing chasms of what is to be

So take care
Hold fast
Thicken your roads to last
Throughout each role endured

Then in that wise and ageless heart
The faint froth of memory
Like a phosphorescent encore
Brings a Girl Returning

She'll complete the laughter
Roaring joyous tears
Both FINALLY knowing
We are each other's Something More
