I Miss Me

I miss the little girl with the great smile

I miss my short brown hair

I miss the little girl who organized and loved to clean

now my room is carpeted by all the clothes I own 

I miss when everyone called me Gracie

when people didn’t believe my real name was Grace 

I miss the way I wrote my name

I made the A so big it looked like a mountain

or the way I wrote my Gs with a full line

I miss me so much

I miss, not doubting whether or not people really knew me

I have so many thoughts but I’ll laugh at anything 

I introduce myself as Grace but you should know it’s really Gracie

I miss me

and I miss the people who knew me
