She sat quietly swinging her bare feet back and forth as the warm breeze played gently with her long,
tangled brown hair. Her eyes set on the sunset as it slowly said goodbye to the day. She begin to wonder
what was beyond the sun, the clouds and the ocean and wished her eyes could travel that far. She smiled
as she felt the tender tickles of the grass as it touched her feet. It was the same grass she loved so much
to lay down on and look up at the clouds.
She continued to swing quietly not daring to interrupt the peace of the ending day. A fallen leaf sliding
down through her cheek and landing on her hand reminded her of her love. Its gentle touch was very
similar to his loving caresses. In the moment, all memories of him stirred up in her heart reminding her
of the time when he was still there, on that very same swing where in his arms they would watch sunsets
together every afternoon. No longer would she hear his soft whispers telling her how much he loved
her, the only whispers left where those of the tree that with the sound of its moving leaves assured
her that everything would be okay.
Yes, she missed him! She missed him with all her heart and being and wondered if sometime today
he had thought of her too as she did for him every day. She continued to watch on the horizon, her
eyes locked on what was left of that day's sunset and wondered what was beyond the sun, the clouds and
the ocean and wished her eyes could travel that far so she could see her love's smile one once again.
