The universe laid still in that moment.
It seemed to be on hold, solely for us.
You were there with me, laying in my arms. I held your waist tightly, your silky soft arms hung around my neck.
I glanced down at your ocean blue eyes, they were shimmering. I knew you were living in this moment with me, the moment we’ve been waiting for so long. The years we spent apart from each other; the agony always comes rushing back whenever I think of how much time I’ve wasted not being in your arms.
Everything felt complete, for once.
I tightened my grip on you.
“I will never let you go again.”
There was nothing in the world that I would trade for this moment, even this brief. With this serenity and feeling of eternal bliss with you.
You entwined your fingers with mine and gave a gentle squeeze, the corners of your lips slightly upturned.
“I will never let you.”
The universe never seem to recommence again; at least it was how it felt for them.
