MEMORY

Timesdrifting away with allher yesterdays. An old girlleft wondering how  the young girlin her, is doing now ? Is she playingwith the sunlight tucked inby the moonlight. Onlytime will tell of her silentwishing wells. And theshooting star prays that got lostin the milky way. Kúkwstum̓ckacw / Thank you for reading.
