Downtown Girl

Another year

Another special visit

To  honor and remember 

All who lost their lives...

Including my dearest friend


I remember that day

All too well


As Barbara and I headed to our destination 

We wished each other 

To have a great day

Her stop was downtown 

Mine was uptown 


I called her the Downtown girl

She called me the Uptown girl


This Uptown Girl was the lucky one

Oh how I miss my Downtown girl 

I think of her every single day

And wonder why Barbara and not me...

I suppose it was destiny!
