today is her birthday
think i'll go for a walk
was the last thing she said.
she tied up her hair like she meant business.
i knew then that she wasn't coming back.
it caused havoc at first, they said she was either selfish or dead.
i watched her glide away and as she grew tiny, i could see her more closely in my mind,
once i asked if i could save her,
she laughed and said
you'll have to catch me first.
