Will You Still Hold My Hand?

Will you still hold my hand when you're sixteen?

I asked her that on her 14th birthday when she took my hand as we walked across the parking lot of the dollar store.

She often held my hand, but she was growing up and I knew those days were numbered.

Her answer:  Probably not. I'll be too old then.

She's sixteen now. She still holds my hand. Especially when it's -5 degrees outside and she's forgotten her gloves.
