She was alone in her fear,
so so very alone.
She walked the bright hallways as if they were dark,
head bowed to the ground,
shoulders curving in a self-protecting habit,
she grew her hair long and kept it hanging,
a curtain over her pale face.
Until one day when a sunshine boy came,
he looked at her with a smile on his face.
He made her laugh and laugh again.
He took away her rain and replaced it with his sunshine.
Now she walks down the hallway,
looking the world in the eye...
Or maybe just looking for him.
