I wish you leave behind a gold coin.
I wish you come in satin slippers, so I can admire them.
I wish you come tonight, because I’ve been waiting a long time.
Emma turned and looked at Nancy. “Do you think she’ll come tonight? I made all these wishes from the bottom of my heart.”
Nancy smiled, helped Emma into bed, tucked her in and stroked her hair. ‘Emma, I’m sure she will. Did you put the tooth under your pillow? We don’t want to delay the Tooth Fairy when she is out on her nightly duty, now do we?’
Smiling, Emma replied in the affirmative and rolled over to her side and fell into a deep sleep.
Nancy looked to make sure she was sleeping comfortably and gently opened the door to let herself out. She looked up to see Dr. Raj on his rounds.
“How is she doing?” he asked Nancy.
‘Seems to be okay, Doctor. The dementia does seem to be getting worse though. Tonight she thought she was a child waiting for the tooth fairy.’
Sighing, Dr. Raj said, “Well, that’s not surprising, given her health. Keep an eye on her, will you? She’s one active 80-year-old, considering everything she’s been through.”
