What's With The Shoes?

One step.

One moment.

One heartbeat at a time.


She was kind.
She was thoughtful.
She listened.
She cared.
She was there during tough times.
She made me smile.
She helped me be me again.
She made my life better.

One night she disappeared.
The next day she was gone.
It's like she was never there.


It was only yesterday.
Sure, there were others,
but only one made that impression.

The nurse's name was Maria.
