When did you become
her constant companion? Was it when she was five when her mother died and she was sent away? Did you join her on that long train ride sit beside her hold her hand tell her not to cry? Was it then that you told her you would always be by her side? When did she turn to you, welcome you in? Was it when she had no one, nowhere else to turn? Did you say follow me I will take you away? Or did you just stand there and catch her as she fell?
