For real

 “Is it really you?”

She stood there. It was her. I recognized her. Of course I did, I hadn’t been as close to anyone else. There was no doubt, I owned her love. 

“I’m so tired. 

She nodded. 

“Shall we go and meet the others?”

I reached out my hand, her hand was as soft as ever. She walked beside me, I couldn’t believe it, I turned my head expecting to find her gone, but she was still there, smiling encouraging. 

We didn’t get there in time. I woke up sobbing.
