The plane was making its descent down. My hands were shaking, and I felt a bottomless pit in my stomach. My knees did not seem to want to calm down. I was jittery to say the least. This was not my first plane flight and I was not scared of flying. It was the first flight where she was waiting for me somewhere down in that airport.
I have not seen her in a while. How should I act when I see her? I do not know what kind of expression I should make. I do not know what I should feel when I see her. I do not know what she is feeling nor what she will think of me. I do not know what will become of us in the future nor what will happen in the next few minutes. My mind is filled with questions without answers.
As the plane landed, I proceeded my way through the gates. She was there at the lobby but she did not see me yet. She looked amazing, more beautiful than I remembered her to be. I smiled and waved at her. As she looked straight at me, her face lit up with a smile. An expression of joy and happiness as she ran towards me. I opened my arms instinctively. She jumped into my arms and into my body.
She had been waiting for 1 hour. She knew the plane was going to be delayed but that information made her even more nervous as she kept looking at her watch every minute. She had not seen him in a while. As new passengers were getting out of the terminals, she turned her head and she saw him waving and smiling at her. He was as handsome as she remembered him to be. She ran towards him without thinking as if her body moved on its own. She jumped into his arms and everything felt good and well.
She buried her face on his shoulder as he held her tightly. She missed him so much that no words could express it. She could not think, all she knew was that she needed him. She needed him so much. Tears of happiness fell from her eyes. She needed his smile, she needed his arms, she needed his body and she needed his presence. She always knew that both of them will be together and that both of them will always find a way to be with each other.
I let her down gently. I saw that she was crying. I put my hand on her cheek and said, “lift your head, and baby don’t be scared of the things that could go wrong along the way. You’ll get by with a smile. You can’t win at everything but you can try….”
