opened and she reached her palms to the ceiling, watched drapes fall from wings and....
take flight, and she whispered in a voice intelligent enough to only belong to a little girl,
“Goodbye, my heart, flutter your wings to the sky, then find me one day, sprinkle me with
smiles, find me and take me...
