Hi y’all. There’s been a lot going on and the lack of internet connectity seems to have krept up like a pest but I managed to get my phone and I will post an excerpt from SKoH that I had saved on my phone. I’m so tired right now. And I’m upset. I’m overwhelmed and… nothing else to say…
No embedded video… or I don’t know. Please listen for full effect. I love Sleeping at Last and this song means a lot to me. It’s called Heart. It matches this scene perfectly. I think. Okay! Gotta go or I’ll get caught! Miss y’all!
“I’m going to go get some coffee and wash up. You got this. Right Joseph?”
“Yes. I’m not going anywhere.”
“Good. I love you darling. Be right back in a few minutes.”
She tells me so nicely squeezing my hand. I love her so much for being so open and loving. I’m so lucky. Joseph turns towards me leaning a little. He takes my hand and caresses it gently. It’s like I’m fragile and he’s taking every precaution.
“You need anything? More ice?”
I shake my head no and I keep staring at his beautiful face. I can’t eat anything until tomorrow but I don’t feel hungry. I’m so happy to have Joseph near me. His presence consumes me and I can think of nothing else. He kisses my hand and stares back at me with such a smile.
“You look really lovely. I love watching you sleep you know. You look very peaceful and angelic. I miss those days when I could be close to you like this. I miss us together like when we used to cuddle.”
I squeeze his hand in agreement. His words make me sigh and I close my eyes remembering the lovely act of cuddling with him. This love is so intense. How can I survive it? How can I live without it? Something has changed between us… or rather beginning to change. I feel it. It’s strong and I don’t want it to end. He leans closer and I manage to caress him gently on the left side of his cheek. He closes his eyes and he… I wish he would kiss me. It’s a nice dream. He kisses my forehead and sits back down leaning his chin on his hands and just stares. It’s a loving gaze casting a power so profound that I feel stars tickling me.
“I’m so grateful to God that you’re okay. It would end me if something ever happened to you. I love you sweet Matl.”
I’m so moved by his words. I take his right hand as it’s clasped in mine and kiss it. He smiles. I clear my throat.
“I love you too.”
I whisper. It’s enough to kill me inside… this deep, intense feeling of a rare moment where love stops time and you feel you could just… burst! That’s how I feel right now. Like bursting. I love him so much.
