Sunshine would have looked brighter if you we were just sitting together. In the cool early morning’s breeze, while that faintly-lighted sun, slowly rising in the sky, signals another day’s beginning, I would have felt like a whole different person if my arm could stretch enough to find its way to you –to hug you, and never let go of you. If we could rest ourselves by the seashore, watching the bluish waves tirelessly wetting the sand upon which we are softly laying down, to retreat then back that seemingly-endless sea, I would have said – with all confident – that I know what it truly is to be alive, to be happy –I’m alive because you’re next to me. The flaming sun has now settled itself in the center of the sky, shinning with hope I’m in desperate need of; I snap out of a delightful daydream to find you looking right into my eyes; in amazement, I close them, believing I’m hallucinating again, and open them back to find that the most beautiful eyes in the world are still casted upon me. With a captivating smile, you get closer to me, and you hold my hand; at that moment, I knew it was all real: you were actually there with me. Although it seemed impossible to happen, I did not care to ask how we were in the same place together; I was too intoxicated with inexperienced happiness to ask; it did not matter how, in a split second, you were holding my hand, as long as it was real, and not just another dream of mine again. You gently whispered “I’m finally here, sweetheart, and I’ll never let go of you”; you whispered hope to my soul to carry on, and love to my heart to beat even more confidently; you whispered life to what used to be a nonsensical existence; at last, life is a worthy experience with you being physically a part of it –actually, with you being all of it. The sun kept on advancing to where it falls, allowing night’s darkness to invade the world yet another night; and when it gradually disappeared, leaving nothing but some sad orange glow, that hardly lit the horizon for a couple of minutes, hope was gone, once again. I turned around, and there was nobody there; you were gone, again. Night’s bleakness overwhelmed me with sorrow, as it extinguished once more a sparkle of hope that had already grown faded; here came another night of loneliness and despair; here I lay down in bed to think of you, and to miss you even more. Such a hard time is nighttime! All I can do is impatiently wait for an upcoming sunshine; for the birth of another day, where I’ll be with you one more time.
