Beautiful apparition, a poem for Terri Garber by Tracy Diane Miller

At night
I am visited by the ghosts of memories past
A timely serenade
Through the hours will last

I see myself from decades ago
Optimism the clothes I wear
I followed life’s journey
Opportunities always there

I may miss the girl
That I used to be
A beautiful apparition
She stills haunts me

Yet proudly I wear
The battle scars of a well-written story
The determined woman I am
Ready to create new glory
