I stumbled across this poem today in search of another! I've lost quite a few poems in my time due to computer crashes or whatever. Anyhow, I like this one, so now it's on the blog, where it might stay safe for a while. I hope you like it too!
Who's voice is this I want to know,
I hear her,
She is so familiar.
Sounds like me, but not so.
I hear her voice from years ago.
I hear it now,
I want to smile,
I love her spirit and her guile.
Where did she go?

I hear her playing a different tune,

The tone less tuned.
To strangers, she's a side of herself,
To family, friends, she's many guises.
To me, she's part of what might be.
I hear her voice,
