This too was written in my high shool by Jennifer Blazina. It is to me a most brilliant piece and I never forgot it. I often wonder if she still writes.
I saw your face just once.
Only once did I feel the warmth of your smile.
Then it disappeared in sorrow.
I heard your voice just once.
Only once did I hear you call my name
But the echoes soon ceased.
I felt the rain, but just for a moment
Before it mixed with my salty tears.
And I watched you walk away,
Turning your head back, but only once.
A brilliant day to each of you.
All my love and care,
