an unfamiliar name.

I thought of you today,
an unfamiliar name,
that was once integral,
to everything I became.
I’d all but forgotten you once were,
but now here you are,
a reminder of who I’ve been,
and can never be again.
I wondered how’s the family,
if you’re holding on to your dreams,
how much may have changed,
from your daily routine.
I imagined not much,
you’re steady as he goes,
a rock in a river,
unyielding as it flows.
Nothing’s the same here.
I’d be unrecognizable to you.
It seems I’ve grown from,
the vulnerable girl you knew.
But I’m resilient,
and will again someday be the same,
as the girl who belonged,
to an unfamiliar name.
