Sitting in my chair looking at the wall, my memory gone, i get snippets of my life, people, times but then it goes, i'm old and tied. A girl visits me, young and beautiful, bouncy how could i forget her but i do, never knowing if she has been. She sometimes puts me to bed, stroking my head till i fall asleep, thats what she tells me but i can never rember it's all a blur. This particular evening she comes to see me, all smiles and very happy, i smile, theres something about her i can't put my finger on it. I think she is going to put me to bed but no, this time she puts her hand out, i hold it and stand, i feel a sensation running through my arm, a tingle, then she leads me to the stairs, me walking something i havn't done in a long time. She then walks me up the first step, the stairs i havn't walked up for a very long time, again a tingle in my legs, as we walk together every step my body tingles, half way up i look at my hands, feet , all the pain and wrinkles dissapearing, how can this be?, she just smiles, every step i'm getting younger until we reach the top, i then realise who she is, that beautiful bouncing young girl, my wife i had lost all those years ago, she has been looking after me and has come back, we are as young as the first time we fell in love, looking down the stairs an old man in a chair, not tied or in pain anymore, just a smile. I no it's a bit sad but it came to me to write. Thankyou for reading it. x
