We danced


Tonight I spied on you as you sang at the top of your lungs to Rod Stewart. You had turned the lights out and watched as Rod Stewart played piano and sung on stage across the screen.

You swayed your hips like you were there in the crowd and it reminded me of your 50th birthday when we danced in the neighbors garage to your brothers records and laughed the whole night. I was young, only 13 and I never knew that there would be a day when I would cling to that memory like it was the last thing on earth.

I came in to join you and we danced. Holding hands as you swirled under my arm and we moved to Rod Stewarts cover of Have I told you lately that I loved you.. You sung and bent your head back as you did letting the words flow from your mouth.  You knew every single word and you moved in time to those words. It felt as though I had skipped back in time to when I was 13, surrounded by family and friends, holding your hand and dancing with you. You didn’t miss a beat and I thought my face was going to crack from how wide my smile was.

The song ended and you needed a rest. Off to bed, tucked in, I sat on your bed and held your hand.

Love you, Mum

You replied, I love you very much..
