Yes, she was such a beautiful illusion, but then, he realized it was time for her to go to a better place.

Always next to him...

“Knock, knock, knock…” a cold knocking filled all the room. It was everywhere; all over the walls, on the floor and feeling the air. That strange feeling was somewhat uncomfortable, and at the same time, it made him feel somewhat more alive. Every time it surrounded him, the night was a little less dark. Suddenly, gentle warmth surrounded the young man; reminding him of those old times when life was only a beautiful walk in the park, and sadness was only a distant ghost.
Indeed it was only a illusion; a volatile chimera created by a mind tired of spending such a long time in solitude. But even when it was only a dream, it made him happy. For a little while, all the memories of a dark past got lost into a cloud of something that looked like a bit of happiness. Yes, it was only daydreaming, but it reminded him of her. The magic of the dreams made him feel the presence of his loved one. It was like she was next to him, helping her boyfriend to smile on those long nights when the loneliness hits hard the solitary hearts. It was so great feeling her sweet presence, that he didn´t want to wake up from that dream. But on the back of his mind, he knew it had to end. It was beautiful being with her for a moment, but it wasn´t real. So, with a very big smile, he let her go. He needed her, but the place for the young woman wasn´t this Earth anymore. Now, her home was beyond the bluest skies. Even when he couldn´t hold her anymore, the young man realized she always would be by his side. No matter what could happen; life blessed him with a gift more valuable than all the gold in the world.; a beautiful angle that would be always watching over his shoulder, just to ensure he never gave up on those dreams they shared.
