•{ Friends on a Roof . . .

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”

― Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

•{ Are You Coming . . .?

He had been away for a while. Business, of course – that was the one thing that always kept them separated. They spent the time apart connecting over video chats and messages now and then, but it was never enough. She missed him more than she let on during their conversations. If she admitted the truth to herself, it would only make way for other emotions to rise to the surface, and that was something she didn’t want to risk. It was easier to lie to herself.

Over the past few days, her mood had been rather somber as she dealt with sudden issues that had arisen. When they spoke, and he asked how things were, she didn’t tell him of the troubles. No need to bother him with it, she had told herself. No need. The conversation was kept light and speckled with banter. Everything was as it should be.

Imagine her surprise when there was a knock on her door a couple of days later. She had gotten home not long ago from work when she heard the knock. Strange, she wasn’t expecting anyone.

“One moment!” She called out as she made her way to the door. When she opened it, what she saw on the other side she almost didn’t believe. Her mouth stood open.

There he was, leaning on her doorframe with a smug look on his face and a bag in one hand. “I just flew twenty-thousand miles to tell you, in person, that you don’t listen,” he said.

She was confused and knotted her brows feeling both confused and excited at the same time. “What?”

The look on her face made him smile. He pushed forward and cupped her gently – yet with authority – under the chin before he kissed her. “See,” he said afterward with a smirk. “You don’t listen.” He let her go and shouldered his way into her apartment, offering the bag he carried. “For you.”

She watched him as he took off his jacket and strolled aimlessly about the living room. How was he here? Why was he here? Though she was curious, it paled to the thrill she felt at his presence. She closed the door and began walking towards him, head down as she looked in the bag. It was an outfit. Before she could say anything he spoke, “You thought I wouldn’t know what was going on with you? That you needed me?” If she didn’t know better, she would have thought there was a hint of sadness in his tone.

She looked up and saw his eyes set on her. “Let me make it better,” he continued. He knew. The fact that he knew without her saying anything spoke volumes. Her hands tightened around the bag and she drew in a slow breath. A thousand thoughts crossed her mind and then everything clicked into place.

A smile spread across her lips, the type that held laughter at bay. “You’re impossible, you know that?” She laughed a bit and exited to her bedroom. He didn’t follow, which worked perfectly for she wanted to have a moment to dress in his gift and collect herself.

It was pretty – what he had gotten her -even though there wasn’t much to the outfit. Strips of thin lace were held together by thin gold chains. Ordinarily, something like this would have caused her to blush uncontrollably, and she wouldn’t dream of putting it on. But she did put it on and, as she studied herself in the mirror, she felt confident and strong.

She scooted back on the bed and cleared her throat, calling out to him, “Are you coming?” . . .

•{ Before You Go . . .

I got places to go
And you’ve got them too
But before you go
I got to get a kiss from you

So slide into these arms
Forget the world and all it’s charms
Just give me one more kiss
To let me know life is more than this. . . .


Thanks to Adam for posing with me!

•{ Talking Through Pictures . . .

Talk to me through pictures
Tell me what they say
Will it make you take a look
Or turn and walk away.

There is no one who’s perfect
That’s not who we’re meant to be
But what we say through the images
Can spark cascades of memories.

Remember when . . .
Yeah
And then you . . . .
Those were the times.

So you talk to me in pictures,
And I reply in mine.

•{ To the Window . . .

So bring me the night, send out the stars
‘Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night

Morning came and he was gone. Nothing new. He had told her when he came the night before, that it would be that way. Only. She had hoped to wake up before he had to leave. “That dummy,” she muttered to herself, “I told him to wake me if I was still sleeping.”

She stretched out on the bed and then grabbed his pillow close. It was still warm. Rays of the new day shot in through the window, slowly brightening up the room. She closed her eyes, wishing for the night to come.

“Swear I don’t know if the days are as slow as they seem
Wondering when you’ll be with me again and this
Finally can be more than just a dream
But when I close my eyes I want only to stay
Where the farthest you are is a heartbeat away”

The day crept on slowly. Three days since he had left that morning. When he could he’d call and they’d share a short conversation before work pulled them apart again. I love you. I’ll see you soon. I’m almost home. Those were the phrases that kept them both going.

Work and friends kept her busy during the day, even some of the evening, but every night she’d go to the window and look up at the stars. It was an intense feeling and she’d swear that he was out there calling to her.

“And it’s enough knowing you…
(I know that you’re) are calling to me
While you’re dreaming beneath the same moon
All it takes is imagining you
So that I can get through
One more long and lonely day”

Just a small time to get away

The things that will be between you and me.
