Adieu*

When I said “Thank you” to the old man who walked me to the car, what I really wanted to say was:

“You saved me and I will never forget you and I love the way your smile comes in halves and how white and soft your hair looks and the way you don’t think twice about putting your old arm around me as if we had been friends for a very long time.”

*a Dieu vous comant (I commend you to God)
