when his voice starts singing,
she calms down.
merges with his music,
is fully committed to him.
He affects her
sings about how she feels.
The feeling, the grief, the yearning
– all that scares her
because she feels the same way.
She feels understood
and for the first time she thinks
she’s not the only one experiencing all that.
She wished he would be with her,
would be able to take her hand,
softly caresses it.
She wished he would share all this with her,
carry her away,
into the world of music.
She wished she was not alone right now.
