to wander is to be lost




missing since Sunday
she sighs when she sleeps
moving on
to who knows where

just one steady look-see 
just one focused listen
so long gone
 before that day of rest

out there
in a big world
willing to grovel
hitch hike
beg
wander

she's out there
 our little girl lost
hoping
dreaming
wishing
for that elusive
someday
