reaching

She had the same name as my mother,

and the same accent,

filled with granite and love –

.

the bed was to high for the dog to see Her,

and she was too immobilized to see Him —

and the rules did not allow big dogs on beds….

but slowly Her hand crept out from under the blanket,

and as She reached down,

He reached up…

.

Love always finds a way,

if only for a moment.
