That night changed it
All — she had never been
The same — never could be — that girl
Was gone — lost in someone else’s anger
But maybe a new innocence
Could be found, forged in love
And forgiveness

  2. “But maybe a new innocence could be found, forged in love, forgivness…Dreaming”
    I love the hope of those words…and the possiblity that innocence can be reclaimed.

    Kind of a double-edged sword. The losing of the past, the re-weaving of the future.
