I thought he was looking at the sky. I slowly walked to him. He didn’t notice me even when I was close to him. When I looked at his face, I was not sure if he was smiling or crying. So I put my hand on his shoulder. Then he turned his head to look at me. When he looked at me, he looked like he wanted to say something because I saw his mouth slightly moving. I unconsciously went one step close to him. He came one step close to me as well. He started to cry in my arms holding me.
A girl who giggles as I come in. Time is too short. But I fell in love. I want to know you. Your laugh mingles with my silly joke. The young girl who Laughs like an old woman. I don’t even know your name yet.
Look at me and open your eyes. I want to know everything about you. But I don’t know what to ask. Time is too short. I want to remember you. I will remember you. I wish the tip of my fingers remember your skin. Nothing is permanent, even you.
I don’t have a power to save you. I hate myself. I don’t know what I can do for you. This should be the end, says another part of my life. Run away. Stop it while you can. Everything was wrong from the beginning. The tricks and me. We all shall be forgotten.
A child asked his grandfather, “How old are you grandpa?”
“Grandpa is 70 years old.”
“Until what age will you live?”
“Grandpa will live until 75.”
Child thought, ‘That’s short’ feeling unfamiliar bitter sadness as he keeps looking at his grandfather.
He is watching TV alone sitting at couch. It’s getting dark outside, so he turned on lamp. His father sits on chair next to the couch to watch TV. Then his father looks at his son saying, “Is everything alright?”. He looks back his father but he wavers like he wants to tell something. Something in his mind stops him.
Father moves to sit next to him on couch, but the son deliberately fixes his eyes back on TV. He thinks something happened to him. He gazes at his son, and calls his name. His son looks at him. They look at each other for 5 seconds without saying anything. He catches his son’s face being contorted from sadness. He hugs him. He says, “It’s okay son, you can tell me everything,”. His son starts to cry in his arms.
