Please know, my friend, that I never said goodbye.
Actually, what I said was,
“Goodnight, my darling.
I’ll be by your side throughout the dark night, (as long as you want me to be)
Wherever your dreams will take you . .
and I’ll see you in the morning (when we awaken).
You can poke me.”
It’s so sad that being unwell at the time, my insanity couldn’t find a way to translate this into a deep understanding between two hearts,
yours & mine.
