Hope’s Eternal Embrace

We fell into each other’s arms. It felt good to hold her, and to be held.

But it was much more than that. In that moment, we were united in our mutual longing. It was as though we were clinging to each other for life. We held onto each other so tightly that the only way we could have been any closer would have been for our bodies to melt together.

We must have stood there that way for a good five minutes. For those few minutes, there was no better, safer place for us to be. As long as we remained in the moment, we didn’t need anything else.
