Falling for you
It is a few short steps to the edge. It will soon be over.
It is exactly a year since he died. My twin brother, my best friend and soul mate. Knitted with the same pins our Grannie once said.
Standing at the very edge I look down. I brace myself, search for my inner courage. I think of Ben, I know he will be with me all the way. With me, like he always was.
I lean forward, slowly, then fall through the air. I feel it stream through my hair, rushing across my face, across my body. I tumble then straighten as the surface rushes towards me. This is it.
Sudden blackness, a silent void. Peace.
There is a light shimmering in the distance. It expands, grows as I move towards it. Then in a spray of water I surface. Flags waving, cheering, shouting.
That one was for you Ben.
