The Small Girl would Once Reside in a Different Home,
In the Place where She was Born,
At Three Years of Age.
She was Asleep in the Darkest Hour of the
As the Twilight Sky would Cry of
Gentle Rain Drops Onto the Dry Desert. .
She Knew that her Mother became ill,
And on some Days, this illness would be of a Reminder.
Although that be All She was Told of it.
Her Eyes would Open in the Moments
She Heard the Voices of Her Parents
Near the Vicinity of Her Door,
Their Sounds were to a Whisper.
She Felt a Wave. .that something was in Terrible Amiss,
Her Mother would Say Words that were very Firm,
Though She Failed to Follow what She had Spoken. .
She Sensed the Slight Fear in Her Father at the Arise of Her Sentence.
There was a Silence, Until Her Mother Spoke. .
Her Words so Tender. .The Softest it has ever been,
The Softest She has ever Heard. .
Another Silence as She Suddenly became Aware
That Her Father was Hesitant of a Response, but Soon,
He would Say Clearly. .yet Bothered,
“All right. .okay. .”
The Last. .and Only Words She would Comprehend from
Their Mysterious Talk. .
Moments Later, the Sounds of Keys Grew Audible in Her Ears,
Then a Small Crack to Her Door, it was Her Mother. .
In the Darkness, Her Body looked Only of a Shadow
As She Sauntered Near to Her Daughter’s Bed. .
Kneeling Down at the Side of it.
She Stared Directly into Her Eyes; She would do the same,
For they Held much of a Strong Communication through this,
On a Farther Depth then Usual.
She then would Tell Her, in a Serene Tone,
With Her Hand Near to Her Heart,
“You will always be my daughter. .in spirit, and I will forever be
Your mother. .in spirit. .I will always see you in my heart. .
And you will forever feel me in yours. .
Any place you go, and all that you do. .
I will follow you. .”
Her Words would Resonate. .
As if they were Spoken by the Essence of Her Spirit Alone.
Her Mother Lifted Herself from the Place where She would sit. .
Departing from Her Room,
There was Sign that Her Walking Grew Steady
When She watched Her Leave, Almost to
Hide that She was Slightly Weary,
In Spite of this, Her Strength was enough to Endure.
