The night I got the call. I knew I had to be by her. She was my only true love. I don't know what I could do without her. If she were gone, I would probobly die. She is the one that I want. And getting to her is a problem.

My car isn't starting. The engine is busted. I need to get to her quickly. My old, red, chevrolet has a busted engine. I kick the old paint and lay down crying. There's nothing I can do. The only thing I can do is run. And that's exactly what I do.

I keep running. Forever. Running a thousand miles in one direction without stopping. If I couldn't get to her I don't think I have any purpose in life.

While I was running a car hits me. Not exactly hits but stops right in front of me. An old man with bushy grey hair steps out of the car.

"Young man why are you running out in the middle of the road like this?"

I stopped. Breathing was to hard at the moment.

"I need to see Lucy. My love. She has cancer and she's in the worst condition and the doctors don't think she's going to make it."

The man looked down. I think he was thinking.

"My name is Chuck. I don't know what I can do for you, My wife died at the age of 29 from a severe asthma attack. I know what it feels like. I wish I could help you but I'm afraid I'm on my way to a dentist appointment and the hospital is to far.. I wish you luck."

I couldn't believe the old man couldn't help me. What was a little ride for? The hospital was far away. About an hour. But if you were a good person would you do the same?

I sat on a bench crying. I couldn't help it. I don't usually cry. It just burst out and I couldn't help it.

People glanced at me and walked away. Probobly thought I was a freak crying over something that was childish.

I remember the time me and Lucy were walking in the park as a happy couple. We would watch the birds sing and I would hold her hand.

I remember the first time me and Lucy kissed. It was on top of Mount Kinders at a national park. Its a weird place for a kiss but It was the best one we ever had.

I also remember the first time I said I loved Lucy. We were at her house watching a movie and I had this feeling in my stomach and I just blurt it out. Lucy smiled showing her beautiful white teeth, and said she loved me to.

The last thing I had time to remember was when me and Lucy first talked. I had this one feeling in my stomach that time and I needed to ask her out. I asked her when we were with a group of friends that night. She said yes and I never forgot that night.

All of a sudden I came out of my day dreaming. An old women came and sat next to me. She looked at my face and started crying.

I asked her why she was crying.

"I know what it's like to lose someone. I need to get you to the one. I know what hospital I just have a feeling. No questions just get in my car."

I looked suprised.

This women was offering to take me to my beloved.

I got into her car. It smelled of old perfume and cat litter. It was a cute car with a green siding and inside leather bound seats.

She climbed in her car and started talking about her husband who died in the war. I knew who he was. A major gerneral in the military a very brave man.

I learned alot an felt as if I needed to be there for the old women.

Her husband, General Charles Liston, was the military gerneral of a well-known force. He would take command and would not let anyone get near him without him getting to them first. Unfortunately, For General Liston, He was shot in the leg and heart twice. He was forced to have surgery but did not have enough strength to hold on. His wife, who was the lady I was in the car with, had 3 children and knew she needed to be there to care for them.

In some ways I was in the same situation as her. My darling is dying and hers was dying at a time.

It turns out, the hospital was less of a ways then I thought. I got dropped off and thanked the old lady.

I ran in. I searched room after room with nurses yelling at me to leave them.

At last I found Lucy.

She was laying in a hospital bed. She had pale cheeks. Blonde hair. She usually had the bluest eyes in the world but at the moment they were a dull shade of grey.

I layed down to her bed and said something.

"Lucy. You can let go. You will always be in my heart forever. I thought about us today and I know you want to leave this cancer situation and I'm going to be strong and let you."

Lucy smiled. She knew that I was going to be okay.

She whispered something in my ear before she left.

"I Love You Jon Daniels."

I responded.

"I Love you to Lucy Johnson."

She closed her eyes and I seen the bright light of her soul flash out of her body and into the sky.

I started weeping. But who dosen't? I loved her and she left.

I was going to be okay. Thinking about the old women made me realize that some things you just have to let go of in lift. Even if you want them to stay. Really the old women was an inspiration to me to realize that you can be strong and brave and overcome the things that you thought you couldn't of overcome earlier in the situation. She was definatly someone I can look up to in an early age.

I'm alright.

I'm strong.

I will always turn everything into something I can be proud of.

I know in my heart.

Lucy is in the sky smiling at me.
