She left me


Too many people to count

All built up in one mind

Slowly each one emerges

Taking their turn at the world

One’s a saint

One’s a sinner

One is God

One is nothing

They each have their way

Not one is the same

Each glowing with passion

Overflowing with cleverness

One’s a mother

One’s a daughter

One is a wife

One is something

Their used to be just one--

But she’s forever lost

Her memory lingers in my mind

Like that of a long lost mother

To an abandoned child.
