“Music” (reflections of a writer) GD

You have been there for as long as I can remember.  I remember, before her passing, almost 30 years ago, that you captured the heart and imagination of both her & I.  I was ten, and she was just eight.  I held on to that cassette tape for awhile — the one that had the “Watermelon Song” recording she sang, the song we both created together.

I can still hear her frustrated shrills in my mind, a reaction to my teasing.

I used to tease her so.
A terminal foreigner called Leukemia appeared on our doorstep one day, and he staked his claim.

It started off as a little lump in her inner thigh, but soon it became a dismal prognosis.
You know, I used to play that cassette over and over, because I didn’t want to let go of her.

Eventually, the tape wore out and snapped in two, and all that remained were the memories I kept in my mind of her and I, and our song.
You have been there for as long as I can remember…
