                    I stood silently as she moved about, her motion was poetry and time seemed to stand still. She stopped for a moment and cast a glance in my direction. Her face was illuminated in the faint light and I could see a tear...running down her cheek. She motioned for me to come closer and I held my breath and took a few steps in her direction.

                          I made my way into the living room, threw another log on the fire and stood for a moment, my eyes fixed on the flickering light. The effects were hypnotic, and coupled with the sweet aroma of the burning logs....I found myself drifting off.....thoughts of days gone by sifted through my mind. And there she was....appearing younger now....yet it was clearly her.

                            My spine tingled as I thought of her caress, the scent of her perfume..... I felt my heart beat faster.... I thought I would die...




                            Then I woke up and found the dog, with his nose to mine, panting, tongue sticking out, slobbering on my face because he wanted to go out!!!!!!!
