she liked the ocean breeze

because it reminded her of childhood

and getting away


and she liked the soft caress of music

for it whispered needed asurance

and took her breath away


she could not sing

strong enough for one to hear

or well enough to apprehend


but she really wished someday she could become

what someone needed or to simply hold on to


day, after day, after day
