I saw a young woman tonight

I saw a young woman tonight.

She reminded me of you:
when we were younger;
when we first met; and
when last I held you close.

Her hair like a halo,
her smile full of life,
she was clearly happy to be
in the here & now.

A voice like a meadowlark,
eyes sparkling in night,
she was a lone gem
in a car of unknowing boys.

I shouldn't regret
the paths of our lives.
It is part of who we are
and some good in it, too.

But I can't help but wonder
what it would be like now
to have music, and children
and you.
