Unbidden tears rolled down my cheeks. It was happening, what I’d feared the most. She was leaving despite all my efforts to stop her. I would be worthless without you. I won’t be able to wake in the morning, for my morning would be night without you.
It was happening, what I’d dreaded the most. She would close her eyes and I will vanish, swallowed by darkness.
Her memories would be a chain around my neck, I will wear it till the end of time.
But she would not be with me when I grow grey and toothless and absentminded. She would not see our daughter when she grow into a beautiful bride. She would not see our grand children playing in the yard and the green field. She will not be there when I close my eyes and take my final nap.
But she would be here when I open my eyes and all I will see are lights — a canopy of lights, blinding lights. Where gravity holds no territory, where I would be a floating time swimming in a formless stream. Where i would be naked as i was born and blank as a clean slate.
She would be here when i take my first step, oblivious and instinctive. She would be here, embracing me into this fledgling world but I won’t know it’s her.
