Just Like You









Once in a world
just like this,
I knew a girl
just like you.
Wild and free,
she all too soon
turned into dust.
If only she might
still look after me,
finding me older,
as surely she must,
but no longer filled
with such wanderlust.
She, alas,
won't ever see,
how much like her
you are to me.
