Where did he go? My love, what happened, I'm so lost

without him? I don't know where to go now, there is nothing

for me in this life. I had a purpose with him, but now,

nothing. I tried to see the light, but there was only darkness.

The dark surrounded me, taking me further from the light,

pulling me closer to the edge. As I near it, I see the darkness for

what it really is, a serpent trying to swallow me. I call out for help,

I reach for something to hold on to.

As all hope seems lost, I feel something grab me

and I close my eyes. It takes me away

from the darkness, and into the light. I open my eyes to see

his face. He opens his mouth to say something, one word. Hope.

I wake from my sleep and I know I was dreaming, but it was

also real. I know now to not lose hope, that there is a light,

even though he is gone.
