Don’t look back….

My mother died just before the end of my first year away at school.

There was a long corridor which was the exit and the last chance for a glimpse of departing parents. 

That autumn, my Aunty wore a coat just like my mother’s. My cousin was in the same house as I was and so, as she left, my Aunty looked just like my Mother. 

Surely it had all been a  big mistake.
