The grass on the sides of the light side walk was emerald green and familiar though I knew I had never been here in my existence. The house was small, nothing crazy fancy about it and without knowing why, I stood there at the door, knocking my fingers against the cool wooden door. It wad quickly opened by the most beautiful face in the world; a little girl about 6 years old. She was small with long brown hair that was held back by a few bows clipped lazily into her hair like someone knew they would just fall out after an afternoon of playing. Her eyes were a beautiful shade of green, putting the grass in the front yard to shame with a small, perfect smile framed by thin, pink lips. She had a dark blue shirt on with a pair of shorts. She said hello and called into the house that she was leaving. This child was coming with me? But to where? Then the one person I wanted to see most was framed by the front door. Shirtless with khaki shorts and a deeper tan then I had ever seen. His eyes the same as the little girl’s who had grabbed my hand after she walked silently out of the quaint little home.
When I looked back to the door way he was not alone. She was standing next to him, her hair longer then I had ever seen it holding a swaddled bundle in her arms. The little girl tugged on my arm forcing my attention to break from what I was trying to process. She pulled one more time and we started away from the one place that seemed like it could be familiar. I turned to look at the doorway that was left with one person standing there, but he was easing the door shut, and it seemed that as the door closed inch by inch, my air supply was being closed along with it.
Then, the small angel spoke for the first time to me;
“Mommy, when will we be back to see daddy next?” I just stared. I had no answer for those innocent eyes staring deeply into mine.
“I don’t know love, I really don’t know.” So we just walked, her tiny hand in mine, down the narrow path with tears streaming down my cheeks.
Soon my eyes were blurred, as I gazed around my bedroom, and I broke down into heavy sobs. Crying to no one but the slight breeze the was coming through my window.
