Turn Turn Turn
We let the darkness fill the quiet of the room. We lay there, lost in our own thoughts.
I broke the silence, "so how are you feeling about this trip?
"Scared, excited, happy, sad."
She reacted with a sharp intake of breath like my response has shocked her.
Very quietly she said, "Why?"
"Because we're both human."
She let the breath go, and reach across and hugged me.
Silence blanketed the room once again, and we remained in the darkness, lost in our own thoughts.
