The photograph shows me a girl at 6
In a life filled beach
As cute as teddy she holds
As soft as the rose on her silky brown hair
Her eyes twinkled like a little star
I see thoughts of tomorrow away from her
What made her idle as a painted lonely girl today?
Upon the shores of fun filled ocean of life
What dimmed her brightness?
What caused the dullness in her eyes?
What made me not identify myself at 6?
The shadow of time has turned me unaware of past smiles
