” as we finished our walk “

“ as we finished our walk “
It was our first rain, following Thanksgiving…
I had gone for a walk along our favorite trail…
Despite the chill, I left the cabin without my tam..
It started to mist and then to rain…
My glasses became too wet to see through…
I thought I had put them in my pocket…
When I made my way back home…
They were not there…
Silly me, and to my surprise…
I found them hanging in our tree…
The one we had planted…
Before our children came…
I thought I heard a giggle…
And something moving behind me…
I felt a chill running down my spine…
There was no one there…
I felt a little silly…
Then I remembered the way you would run your finger…
Down my back on those mornings I could not sleep…
On those warm Summer nights where I tossed and turned…
I smiled through the tears, as we finished our walk…
