What Are You Crying For?

My mother died when I was twelve.

She had a cerebral hemorrhage that led to a stroke. A machine was doing the breathing for her. We were all home when the hospital called at 6pm to say she died.

My father had to go to the hospital, and for some reason I went with him. When we got there, she was in bed wearing a white sheet up to her chest. I started crying and my father said "What are you crying for?"
