Subway stop

This little child is standing 
at the subway stop
smiling with her eyes.
This girl of maybe five
who's name I don't know
"tomorrow" written over her face
I can't keep my eyes off of her
but I don't hold her gaze.
All I see are those tiny hands
hands I will never touch nor know
my tabula rasa*
and those smiling eyes.
