A Year to the Day

Valentine’s day twelve months ago her Mum died.  
Entering, Mary called ‘Hi, Dad, it’s me’ then she gasped.
He was sitting at the table; across, an empty place was set with a red rose. ‘Oh, daddy, you sweet romantic soul!’
She sobbed, kissed his cooling forehead and closed his eyes.
