She lay there hugging him tightly, without any air gaps… the drops of her tears were dripping on him. She could not even think of a time to be away from him. The thought made chills in her body.
She spoke to him all night, in the same way as she did every day. the hugs, the kisses, and the cuddles continued …But today she was sad.. upset..he didn’t say anything, waiting for her to open up.. like every time.
She found him as the companion from her childhood, a shoulder to cry, to love, to be loved and be cuddled. She never wanted him to say anything..but just listen. The warmth and presence he could give her were beyond words.
There were nights when she cried all along and slept off on his shoulders, he was her ears..who listened to all the nonsensical word she spoke or left unspoken. The sorrows overflowed from her when she was with him.
Everything seemed so perfect between them, the way he supported her through tough times and the happy times he let her share the joy with a cuddle.The perfect relation in the world, where one never demands the other for anything.
She was never tired of him, always wanted his presence, but at times they lay idle without any overflowing emotions.. but she just received a comfort from him… a support which she needed forever in her life.
One day as she returned to her room, she could not find him…she shouted and called him out… but as usual the response was silence, he was never a talking one..he responded with presence .. a great listener to her soul.
Finally, she ran out of her room, to find that he was playing with her kids..she ran and sat next to them..watching them lovingly… and said,
” Can mamma take the pillow, mamma needs to set the bed please”
And finally with lots of pulling and pushing..he was in her hands..and she went directly inside..put her loving pillow(her favorite) onto her side ..so that she can continue to receive his support all night to sleep.
And before she left the room… she said
Hey, Mr. Pillow ….never leave me.
