It was while we were descending this stairs that he squeezed my hands and whispered to my ears “you know I love you, right?”I had heard those words numerous times but at that moment they sounded completely different,probably it was the tight grip that he held me with.
I nodded my head in agreement and though I could not see him, I felt he perfectly understood I was sincere.”No matter what happens you also know that I do care…”
The intensity of his words sank down my heart as I gave another nod.
As I stare at this very stairs where you last held me tightly, your words loudly echoing in my ears, everything slowly makes sense. What more would you have done than give me your eyesight! Now I nod in agreement that you really cared.
