A familiar face appears within my mind’s eye…

An unforgettable face, no matter how I try.

A kind face, a peaceful face, but one without a smile,

A sad face, a lonely face, seemingly lonely for a while.

A confused face, an old face, pleasant all the same,

A lost face, a needy face, a face with just one name.

Florence, I say within, and her eyes glow big and bright

Her elfin looks younger than the age she is tonight.

She’s reaching out for something, and getting through to me,

Although what she needs isn’t clear: try harder, please, for me.

She remembers clearly days gone by, then drifts away again

When you’re stronger, I think to her, please come through again.
