My arms hurt a little as I hug you tightly from the back. Your shirt is already drenched with my tears. “Please, don’t go,” I whispered.
Then, a blinding light caused my eyes to dart open. There you are, pulling down the blinds. A short sigh of relief escaped from my lips.
When the room was finally lit with early morning sunshine, you came up beside me and I locked you inside my arms as tight as I did long ago. ©
