100 Word Challenge: Within You Without You

The 100 Word Challenge, Same As It Ever Was, Can Be Found Here

This Week's Word Is "Within".

My Entry Is Called "Within You Without You".

“What was that song called?,” she asked. “The one on ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’?“

I chuckled, looking at her head, bald from chemotherapy and radiation.  “You’ll have to be a little more specific.”

“The one with the Indian instruments.”

“Ah. The sitar. You must be thinking of ‘Within You Without You’.”

“I was just thinking about the words. When he sings, ‘life flows on within you and without you’? At the end?”

“Yes?”

“Scary.”

“It scares me, too.” Scares me in ways I can’t describe.

“I hate the thought of things still happening when I’m dead.”

“We all do,” I assured her.
