She has traveled far to be here again. Inside the boat, the old woman revives each season of their time together. Listening to the distant sound of beating wings, she gently releases the remaining ashes into the river, but they do not sink. Instead, they are swept into the wind and take flight towards the horizon that lies ahead. She watches them travel on, marveling at the tenacity of their endless journey.

When she turns, sitting before her is an old man watching her faithfully. Blessed to have reached this day together, they laugh as spring finally awakens around them. They row past the weeping willows and a familiar tree still surrounded by white stones. A bridge glows in the light of the setting sun as he takes her hand and guides her onto the ground. Hand in hand, they walk across their bridges into a tunnel of pure light without an end in sight.
