She said, “I’m not ready.”
With a shattered heart I said, “Me either.”
She said, “I love you, to the moon and back, forever.”
With my whole heart, I said, “I love you more.”
She said, “I’m scared.”
With fear and anxiety I said, “I’m scared too.”
She said, “I think it’s time.”
Through tears I whispered, “I’ll go with you.”
“You know you can’t do that,” she replied.
“I know, but I’ll go as far as I can.”
And it was true, and it wasn’t far, because before I could walk with her as she stepped into eternity, she disappeared into her forever.
