I knew it was you. I held my breath and took a step forward. I opened my eyes and it was still you. The smell of your sweet cologne rang through my senses. That voice no one else can share. I wrapped my arms around you and all the thoughts of my day that had been holding me back disappeared in a mire second. And, I was alive again. Alive, beyond the most elemental of thoughts and feelings in my own universe. Now, in your universe. I stayed inside of your warm arms for as long as I could. Holding onto your arms as you grasped me with all the comforts of home. I could have stayed with you forever. I could have kissed those lips over and over until my skin grew raw and parched, but it was time to go and to leave you behind. No! I couldn't. I grabbed your hand and took you with me. I could not let you go. I could not give up what might be and what was in you. I held you close and nestled in the corner of your arm, as I slept and my wings were allowed to expand and I flew.
