Missy....park bench....Part 2....

The two, (Missy and the Very Old Man),
 sat in silence for quite some time...
NOT an awkward silence though....not whatsoever....
more of a SAFE, SERENE silence...
Missy wondered at her odd desire to be next to this guy... 
this "GREAT GRANDFATHERLY FIGURE"...
Could this be the DIRECT result of having eaten one too many 'SHROOMS in college ??
LOL
He turned to her, looking now directly at her from those endless, 'other-worldly' eyes...
He said,
"Your father sent me..."
Her tears began to form ....
Her father had died some 6 years ago....
and she pined for him so....
for his wisdom....his humor...his LOVE....
This man on the park bench was an angel of some sort....
sent to give her a message....
of THIS she was certain....
He continued....
"He wants you to know that YOU ARE SAFE....that he has your back...."
"He wants to tell you that, NO MATTER how things seem to be SPIRALING out of control....
that you MUST continue to BELIEVE....
....in GOD....in YOURSELF....in TRIUMPH...."
"He wants to WISH you, his beloved daughter, the HAPPIEST of BIRTHDAYS"...
Missy was in AWE....in SHOCK....
tears pouring down her face....hands trembling....
The old man took the flowered bracelet off of his wrist and placed it on hers....
And then....
He was gone....
