Family Bonds.. (part 3)

I wake up with a start. I quickly get dressed and rush to the hospital.

I run into my mother's room.. I thank God that she looks better.
Sitting down besides her, I take her hands in mine.
"I love you mum.." I say. "You read my diary, didn't you?" She asks. Her voice is a whisper. It is lifeless and weak. I nod my head, not being able to speak.
She lifts my hand and kisses it. She then places it over her chest. Her heart beats are slow..
"I'm sorry." I say.
"Don't be. I always knew you would come back someday." She smiles.

We look at each other..tears fill in both our eyes. I hold her hand tight.
"You will be fine mum. You need to fight." I say.
"Now that you are here, I will fight.."

(A week later)
I walk into my room. It looks brighter now. I lift the picture that was hanging on the wall. I replace it, and hang it back.
I look at it and smile.
It's a picture of a girl holding her parents hands. It's a picture of a happy family.
The girl is me. The two people on my sides are the ones who never stopped caring..

It's my parent's anniversary today. I bake a cake for my mother. I help her cut the cake and feed her. She's happy. She looks beautiful.
Once she falls asleep, I cuddle her into my arms and fall asleep besides her.

I will keep her safe, just the way she did when I was a kid..

So, I did manage a happy ending :)
Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments and for reading :)
