Our Song

I was about to get out of the car.
The door already open.
I was about to enter the overly commercialized world of Christmas.
Then there it was.
Our song.
"Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol.

So I stopped.
I closed the door.
Closed my eyes.
And sat.

Our memories floated through my mind.
Your last birthday.
Your last birthday cake.
Our non-date at Pleasure Island.
One of our first real dates at Bahama Breeze.
Our trip to NYC.
Our wedding day.
Our first dance.
Your last breaths.

Your excitement.
Your laugh.
Your patience. 
Your smile.

The song ended.
I wiped the tears from face.
Exited the car.
And entered back into the world.
