I could see her from my window as she stood at the end of the rickety old dock attached to the rear of the property. At one end the rails rotted and had fallen away so that it wasn’t safe. We were not allowed to play there for fear that one of us would fall into the water. This dock was now covered with ice, as was the water below, and was treacherous slippery. But here my tiny mother stood, motionless, gazing out over the frozen water. She often spent many nights standing here alone, staring far out into the water as if she were hoping to catch a glimpse of my fathers weather worn fishing boat. I fell asleep with this vision of her each night. She was gone when I awakened.
