I water the plant on my desk. I notice a fallen leaf that held a droplet of water on it. I think of you. This void within me becomes more tangible every moment. Will it grow more to swallow me some day?
That song starts to play inside my head:
“Say you’ll love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summer time
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That’s all I ask of you”
I close my eyes and whisper: A droplet of life with you is more to me than oceans with others. A droplet of life with you, sweetheart, that’s all I ask of you.
