“Do you remember me?”
Oh, I remember you, all right-

We were too young for even a vestige of maturity,
yet somehow you grew up with me.
One naughty word typed into a calculator
has now become a hazel-eyed gaze of rapture.
That cute little face of yours
turned into a countenance fit for Hollywood.
Your shy preteen smile
gave way to confidence I can sense for miles.
But the way your red hair grazes your eyelashes
is still the same after a decade’s passage.

You remembered me
by name, face, and unchanged qualities.
I was too young to be defined,
but now I’ve come into my own.
I’m not who you used to know,
but am I like you imagined?
Did I cross your mind
every once in a while
as you crossed mine?
What have the seeds of time sown?

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-Jeremiah 33:3, King James Version

"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."-Psalm 119:105, New Living Translation

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.

"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"

"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."
-from "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.

I wonder IF

“Do you remember me?”
Oh, I remember you, all right-

I cant get to the reality of this till I see a "Recent Avatar" of your good self

See for a good proportion of us here on lit (Myself included) when we look in a mirror we see a stranger...

I believe some even have mirrors banned in there houses.

Reading on I see you are a youngster....there was no such thing as the calculator you described in my teens.... Just Log Tables.. Ready Reckoner's (my dad had one)and those bead things the Chinese used

Call me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Could it be shortened to....

Do You Still Fancy Me ?
