reflection in c-minor

the distant child within me
stirs amidst emotional echoes
harkening back to bright days
dark days
memory hovering on the edge
of extinction
dreams yet unfulfilled
in those twelve year old eyes
from that distant summer
lying in the back seat
as mother drove
i can still feel the motion
of that delta-88

many summers have passed
and yet that twelve year old clings
to life
deep inside of me
holding on desperately
to those yet unfulfilled dreams
of a world so bright
a future so abundant
love so real
reflected in those
twelve year old eyes
