Things to Write About (Prompt 2)

A houseplant is dying.

Tell it why it needs to live.

You have to live, because I need to prove to myself and my mother that I can be responsible. I know you remember being with her and I know she gave you more love and water than I ever have. I regret not doing more and if you stay with me, live another day, I promise to water you everyday, talk to you and play music. We can be very happy together.
