The rain starts falling outside. I open the window and notice the smell of rain. A storm is brewing not too far from here. I look into the distant horizon and wait for the lighting to appear; I can already hear the thunder. You are still sound asleep and I close the window to avoid disturbing you.
I tuck you in and sit down on the reading chair in the corner, put the blanket over my legs and watch you sleep for a bit as I sip some hot tea; You lay on your side with your legs are stretching to the other side of the bed, facing away from the window and the shadow of the window curtain hides you. I can only see your contour, but then again I don’t need to see you; I know exactly how beautiful you are. Sometimes I feel like I’ve known you all my life. You’re chest moves up and down ever so slightly as you breath very calmly. Your long and silky hair covers half of the pillow and it looks wonderful.
A lightning strikes outside, a big flash of light fills the room. I quickly look out the window and then back at you, still asleep warm and protected. A few seconds later comes the thunder, roaring high and making the windows shudder. This time, you wake up, startled. You sit up and call me.
- Yes sweetheart, I’m here.
- What was that?
- It’s just a thunderstorm. Nothing to worry about.
- I was having a nightmare.
- Oh!? Was it scary? Do you want to tell me about it?
- No.. I don’t know.
- It’s ok. If you want to tell me I’m here to listen. If not, I’m also here for you.
- I made tea, do you want some?
- Yes.. Please.
- Ok, let me get you a cup then.
I get up and reach for the kettle, slowly grab it and pour some tea into the other cup. I walk towards the bed and sit down as I hand you the warm cup. When you grab it, my hands grab yours and as I look deeply into your eyes:
- I will always protect you my love.
