It is a perfect day. The white puffy clouds tenderly stroke the sky and birds call to each other as they pass over the lighthouse that guides Barbara home; to her forever home.
I wave at her as she passes and she waves back. Her smile is big and beautiful. It is apparent she doesn't feel pain anymore. I smile back; happy to have met her on my journey.
Someday, I too will come to that lighthouse and it will guide me to my forever home. Somewhere, Barbara will be there and we will write stories together and laugh at our silliness.
Goodbye Barbara. God be with you until we meet again.
