Linger Forever

I lay awake,

Unable to sleep,

Pondering hours to come and 

Days that had passed.

But my dreams

Seemed to long for me

More than my mind

Could wander.

My eyelids soon

Shut,

And I was asleep.

Though Eci had vanished,

The angel was present,

Lingering

In only my dreams.

She seemed to

Float,

And handing me

A small object, she whispered,

"Keep this close."

When I woke up,

The object was still

In my hand,

Solid

Real.

It was a necklace and

It was Eci's.

The End
