They sat together, held each other, blue eyes twinkling of sadness, of happiness of hope for oh so many years. Their hands holding one another, the same look, the same feel. Tears have been shed, dreams have been shattered! Debating if the grass is greener on one side or the other, this side or the other? But overall, they dreamed of nothing less than happiness, happiness for each other. Sharing each step of life, they talked about it all, right here on this bench.
And now, I sit alone on a bench, this bench, close my eyes, feel my mothers love, her touch, her smile, her tears and I know without a doubt, I’ll never be alone.
A daughter and a mother began their journey, a journey that will never end, on a bench, this bench so many years ago!
