All can be gone in a blink of a eye. That is just how fast it was when he left. It is like he was only with her for a moment and then he was gone. As she stood in front of the cold stone she dropped down to her knees to pray. In her mind she says, "Why him? Why did you take him from me? When will I join him?" It was like life had been taken from her when he left her life. It was someone she wanted and wished was not gone. The tears fell from her eyes without any control. She couldn't stop crying. She wanted to, but it wouldn't. Her heart was breaking. She fell even further to the ground pounding on the ground as if he could hear her. She wanted him back. In her mind she knew she could not go one this way. All her hopes and dreams left with him. The wind blew and yet she did not feel the cold. The rain started to pour and she did not feel the water, only her own tears. The pain was more than she could bare. All went silent as she prayed. She looked up at the heavens as the rain poured down her face and she begged, pleaded, and scream, "bring him back to me." All of a sudden the wind and rain stopped, and the clouds parted with sunlight streaming down to her. She heard a voice that seemed to come from nowhere. "He was not yours to have. You did not own him. He is my child; just like you are. Dry your tears, get off your knees. Be assured he is with me. You say you have faith and love in me; then all is going to be fine." She saw know one. She quieted herself. She took and deep breaths in and out as the clouds hide the sunlight. She look at he cold stone and read what was there. "Time is precious like a new born babe." She had never noticed that before. She dusted herself off. She kissed the head stone and said, "I will be with you one day...but today is not that day." She walked away and prayed.
