Change

“It won’t be long.”  She said.  “Soon things will change.  I will pass and once again you will have to learn to live without my presence.”

I sat beside her in silence as my hands trembled in fear of the future that is to come. She lightly placed her hand on my shoulder as tears graced her face. “Don’t worry kid.  I’m afraid too.”

I lifted my head and gave her a small smile. “It is just…I will miss you.”

At that moment she wrapped her arms around me and pulled me in tight. “Just remember.  There is always one place I will always live…your heart.”
