Brittany Zedalis- A Poem


I close my eyes...

And I'm eight years old
again, with you by my
side, while we stroll
by the ocean late one

I'm twelve years old
again, with your
constant reassurance that
high school would be

I'm eighteen years old
again, hearing of your 
dizziness and your
brain tumor with no

I'm twenty one years old
now, kneeling by your 
grave, hoping to have
been the daughter you

Brittany Zedalis is a married 21 year old poet/college junior studying to be an elementary teacher at Francis Marion University. She has had poems published in several journals online and in print.
