  One day I was walking along teary, and sad. There standing beside me suddenly was a figure. It looked somewhat familiar, but was yet different. "um... hello" I murmered. "hello young girl." he said walking on next to me. "What are you doing here" i asked trying not to be rude. He only kept walking. I didnt say much, for though he was a stranger, he seemed almost comforting. I sniffled a little trying to stop my tears and he looked at me and asked, "why do you cry dear?" I looked up, 'wat to say i thought' something inside me said to tell him -- everything. So I started from the beginning. Every struggle, every joy and he walked beside me nodding with understanding. Finnally I came upon the edge of the park, feeling relieved, comforted and blessed. I looked up again "thank you si-' and realized that he was gone. I looked into the sky and saw a dove fluttering in the wind, I smiled and walked home, knowing I had been met in my time of need.
