Dawn’s Early Light

 

We sat in the truck next to each other talking about everything.  Our favorites, what we dreamed, our dislikes, what we had… it went on and on for hours.  Then as the first birds of the day began to signal the coming sunlight with song we were amazed that the time had passed.  Telling him I would see him later that night we just stared at the horizon watching the sun create the day’s first shadows.  Then with one last kiss goodbye I slid off of the seat and stepped into the grass, covered in morning dew.

 

Slowly walking to the door I heard him start the truck and pull out of the driveway.  I did all I could to keep from looking back and waving goodbye.  I removed my keys from my purse and heard a squirrel chatter at a bird in the tree as I opened the door.

 

The night is forever in my memory as an example of time truly lost in what seemed like seconds.  When you are with the right person at the right time, time more than stands still.  It runs backwards and takes your breath away.
