The Moment I Knew

Shannen McGrane, age 18

You came back to us,
to visit,
to find out who you are.

The crowds gathered for you,
the children in their Sunday clothes,
the cars lined up one behind the other.

You stood on top of the car,
turned around and smiled at us,
waving at the crowd.

The moment came upon me,
the crowds gathered,
the moment was special to everyone,
special to me,
that you came back to us.
