Artist's Statement: I have pictures of you and me, the one with you standing beside me on the pink carousel horse wearing my new pink dress and shiny black shoes. I have pictures of you and me, the one with you holding my hand because I was afraid to go to kindergarten that first day of school. I was wearing a new pink dress and shiny black shoes. I have pictures of you and me, the one with you dancing with me at the Christmas party. Remember that one? In the background, your friends are smiling and my friends are snickering.

I am imagining you and me dancing the waltz today. I'm wearing my white dress, the one that mom wore, my string of pearls that you gave me on my graduation day, and my shiny white shoes.

And all I have left are these photos and memories . . . of you and me.
Fannie Narte

Dedication: To all who wish to dance one more time.
