The rain seemed to just stop, catching me so off guard I barely noticed the sun pouring through the clouds. It was in that moment I heard my heart beating lightly inside my chest. Yet, the sound wasn’t there to tell me I was alive, nor that I wasn’t dead, it was there to tell me that I just was.
That’s when they came from above. Memories of my family and all I love; those here, and those gone. Straight from the clouds they came to stand by my side and embrace me as I rested my hands upon the keys.
It was then that my heartbeat became the song.
