Hanging By A Moment
It is our last night together. Tomorrow morning he will be gone.
We don’t talk much. There really aren’t the right words to be found in this situation. It just hangs in the air between us, but we refuse to acknowledge it.
We spend a lot of time just looking at each other, trying to memorize the features that we have grown to love in one another in the short time that we have been in each other’s lives. For me, it’s his eyes that I want to always remember. The little lines in the corners that deepen when he smiles, how they literally sparkle when he is up to no good, and how they seem to look right into my soul when he tells me he loves me. They are blue. Not like the ocean or the sky but a different, beautiful blue that is all his own. I want to see those eyes looking at me forever but I will take tonight since it is all we have.
You would think that we would have planned some spectacular night out on the town. Visiting our favorite places or seeing friends that he likely won’t see again for a very long time. But that is not our plan. Our plan is simple, to just be together. To quietly take each other in, enjoy our time in this last moment.
As the minutes tick by the sun starts to lighten the predawn sky. I usually love the beauty of the sunrise but today it brings with it a heavy reality. This is our last sunrise together. In a few hours, he will be gone and I don’t know if he is coming back.
There is so little time left for us to be together. We both know it. But for now, we aren’t going to talk about the time apart or the distance that will soon be between us. We are going to enjoy this, our “right now”. It’s only a moment and soon it will be gone, and so will he.
