Perfect stranger 12 22

December 13, 2010

Mother’s Love, by Italian artist, Pino

I held her close for only a short time, but after she was gone I’d see her smile on the face of a perfect stranger and I knew she would be there with me all the rest of my days.

It’s from Storypeople and is called Perfect Stranger.

It reminds me of the people no longer in our lives but whom we hold close to our hearts. Parents I know who have lost children of any age. Of friendships broken. Of lost love.

When we lose a person for any reason, our time with them seems so short.
