She appeared out of nowhere.
A dream. An illusion. A quiet ghost.
I wished for some wise words. I listened for a promise. I hoped.
It's all going to be okay. It's all going to be okay. It's all going to be okay.
I took some sort of strange comfort in that. Even though I knew - it was nothing but an imagining.
And I watched - as she disappeared into the shadows....as she faded away.
