#8 I had a dream

I do remember you. You were there, sitting right beside me. It was a hilly region I suppose, because there was a chill in the air. The sun was shining. Bright it was. But not warm. I put my arms around you.

It is 6:00 in the morning. And my sneeze shatters the early morning quiet. I try my best, but it’s all hazy. Urrrghh. I can’t remember it. “Calm down” I tell myself, while sipping water.

You nodded but didn’t utter a word. Maybe you were too tired. Maybe, you didn’t want to speak.

So I just took you in my arms and held you tight. Close to me.

My eyes were closed.

It was like, I wanted to tell you, “It’s all gonna be okay. I am here. For you”.
