I’d sit by her bed, listening. Sometimes she’d hold my hand, but more often she’d hold her pictures…
She asked me once who I was, I said, “No one…”, she replied, “I wonder sometimes if that’s who we all are…”.

Then one day she was gone. I didn’t expect it, not that day anyway… I think it was a wednsday
