In the midst of my unfathomable sleep
I was taken into a world of my dream,
I heard the sea waves running to the shore
I smelled the breeze of salty air
and I felt the little waves splashing on my feet.
I slowly opened my eyes and awakened my senses
The blending of the sun and the red ocean glistened in my eyes,
A heart stopping scenery to cherish.
I looked above and witnessed the colourful canvass of the sky,
It was mystifying that my dream placed me into a sunset viewing.
While savouring this mystical moment,
I heard a voice calling my name.
A recognizable voice – I always wanted to hearken.
Then my eyes closed without my consent,
Listening deeply to where the voice was coming from.
But then it stopped calling my name,
I felt desperate to hear it again,
So I opened my eyes once again
and turned back to know the owner of that familiar voice.
But an attempt to glance
was stopped by a hand, right on my shoulder,
then he spoke softly, “You really love sunset, don’t you?”.
He faced me and I saw his remarkable smile
I coudn't speak, a tear dropped into my eye
He looked alarmed, but he touched my cheeks
and assured, “I’m here with you, we will watch sunset together”.
He held my hand and we walked together on the little waves
that melodically touching our feet.
An eternal stillness was binding us together.
I could feel his warm hand that made me at peace.
The tick of silence gave me a chance to look on his face,
without blinking my eyes in any seconds.
He caught me staring at him and made a puzzle face.
I just showed him a warm smile then he tightened his hold on my hand.
We were simply blissful and serene,
valuing the gift of moment we always wanted to have.
I wished that this will last forever.
I placed my hands in his arm and leaned my head on his shoulder,
like there is no another dream, where we can do this together.
And He uttered, “It’s fine, I’m always here for you”.
Then we stopped and decided to sit together in the sand,
It’s strange to watch the sun unhurriedly setting down,
as if observing and joining our moment as one.
Without even noticing him, he stood up
and bent in front of me saying, “Close your eyes”.
I gestured a protest, but he touched my eyes and let them close.
He breathed deeply and said, “I love you and I will always do”.
He spoke in a sweet voice, “Can you say those words for me?, please”.
So I let him heard the words, “I love you, no matter what”.
A long seconds my eyes were shut.
When I opened it again, I saw him,
Walking above the sea, reaching for the fading sun.
I loudly called his name, but he never turned his back,
as if he can’t hear my shouts.
I tried to follow him, but the waves were barring my way to reach him.
Sea waves were drowning me
and twilight was replacing the beautiful sunset we shared a while ago.
Before the last wave pushed me to the bottom of the sea,
He glanced back at me, He smiled with tears shedding in his eyes.
He blew a kiss and the last words I heard from him
caused my heart to stop beating.
“Don’t force yourself to reach me, stay there and someone will save you”
And he added, “Remember I will always love you and
I’ll be here for you, when you needed me the most”.
The deepest of the sea, swallowed my bursting loud cry.
Then someone grabed my hand, pulling me above.
I tried to see who it was, but my sight was blurred
and my senses faded away.
I was awakened—sweating and hearing the fast beats of my heart,
as if didn’t stopped in my dream.
I realized it was the last sunset of my dream.
