I chose option 1  for Mish’s prompt – a book that is physically close to me and that means a lot to me – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
A short not-quite poem.

“ ‘You’ll stay with me?’
Until the very end,’ said James.”
― J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I will stay with you,
Until the very end.
I held him until he took his last breath –
my beloved husband whom I love until the end of time.

    This is so strong and so true. If I could reach through the web and take your hand, I would. Sending stoicism.

    Oh Toni, tearful here….a lump in my throat. For those of us lucky to find a life partner who is our true friend as well as lover, love never ends. Sending a tearful hug to you over this virtual space.

    I have the same reaction as the others. It brought me to tears, too.
