We walked with her for a little while
Contributed by Sunil Lopez
It rained that Sunday morning.
The sun came up but was washed away.
She was gone.
It was a good day for tears.
The fight against that evil and merciless disease was done.
It was a fight that could not be won; but she fought.
She fought with white hot fire; her indomitable spirit.
But in the end, it was too strong. It battered her until she could not go on.
We walked with her for a little while, on this journey of life.
We shared fear and anger. We shared sadness. We shared the toils.
But we shared laughter and joy as well. She laughed too hard at terrible jokes.
She took delight in ordinary and simple things.
We walked with her for a little while.
But she has gone on ahead of us.
We walk on without her now.
Farewell, sweet girl. The memories of your laughter and delight remain.
