«And then I feel as if I’m witnessing a miracle, as ever so slowly she raises her face toward the moon.
I watch her drink in the sight, sensing the flood of memories she’s unleashed and wanting nothing more than to let her know I’m here.
But instead I stay where I am and stare up at the moon as well.
And for the briefest instant, it almost feels like we’re together again.»
