Lost and Found

She was only seventeen
embarking on her first and only dream
glorified in visions of the night
knowing deep within this must be right

for the visions came in feelings of
complete and everlasting love
and she knew this love was true
for she felt it flowing through and through

her heart and mind and soul
until he came along and stole

the very possibility
to turn vision to reality

for he took away her every dream
he even took her self-esteem
and she wonders now, in later years
if ever he looks back in fear

of all he left behind
or if ever she will find
all that was lost to him then
as she searches and seeks once again

for herself . . .
