A stolen moment.

We hadn’t seen each other in a while. The dogs played amongst themselves, while we talked. Of everything, yet seemingly nothing. She looked like the weight of the world was on her shoulders.

“You look like you need a hug. Come on.”

I stepped close to her. “A hug.” I repeated.

Sitting down, without a further word, I embraced her.

After a little while, she hesitantly put her arms around me as well, and lay her head on my left shoulder, melting into the warmth of the moment. We stayed like that for a while, blissfully uninterrupted. It felt good. more importantly, it felt right.

After what seemed like an eternity, we finally got up, with more than a tinge of unwillingness.

“It feels like my life is finally free of regrets,” she looked at me with a smile.

Me too, Sy. Me too.
