Just A Few Seconds Away

She lives alone.

But not really.

In her state of dementia she believes an angel lives with her.

The angel naps on her bed.  The angel talks to her and tells her things she believes are worth knowing.

My friend went to visit her.  And she told my friend if she wakes up and the angel is gone, she calls for the angel.

And the angel calls back from where she is-

“Don’t worry, I’m just a few seconds away from where you are.”

 I believe.

They are never far from us.
