She walked into the room and saw him.
He laid helpless, trying to regain strength
to open his eyes and see her one last time.
‘I’ve known you my whole life. When I’d
fall, you’d bring me up and wipe away my
tears. Whispering, promising that you
would always be there.’ He grabbed her
hand, willing his words into her heart,
‘I’ll always be with you. Stay honest
and promise you’ll never stop
smiling.’ Wiping away her
tears, she nodded yes.
