Little Girl All Alone

Me circa 1970

Little girl all alone
Unaware no one there
Little girl all by herself
Oblivious to the absence

Does anyone notice?
Does anyone care?

Little girl on her own
Summoning imaginary friends
Little girl in solitary
Music her only companion

Does anyone notice?
Does anyone care?

Little girl seen and loved
By her grown up self
Little girl nurtured and held
By her forty-eight year old self

She notices
She cares
