Dawn

"What's up with you?" I heard my goddess's voice.

Astonished, I got up and sat on my bed.  Even in the semi-darkness of night I could see that it was her.  Gazing at her face, I was wondering where she came from and what she was doing in my room and I couldn't remember what she asked me.

She spoke again, "So what's with all these tears?  You haven't slept in 3 days.  Now you are wetting the pillow.  What is your problem anyway?"

I exhaled deeply to prepare myself for speaking.  In low voice I said "Well, you know what my problem is."

"No, I don't.  You have to tell me."

"I think I love you so much."

"Oh you just think now?  I thought you knew," she said with a smile on her face.  "I know you love me.  But that doesn't explain why you have to sit up all night crying."

"But you don't like me, no?"

"What does it have to do with your love for me?  And, who said I don't like you?"

"Yeah, I know.  You like me.  But still..."

"But still what?"

"You won't be with me no? like forever!"  I was on the verge of tears as I said this.

"Why do you have to think so much about future?  I am with you now.  But you are crying because you want to be with me!  Can't you even see your foolishness?"

I sighed.  I was very confused.  I said, "I don't know."

"Your problem is that you think too much.  Stop thinking and start living.  You will do much better.  I will see you tomorrow."  She started to walk away.

"Can I take this as a Yes from you?  Will you be with me?"

"I just answered the same question.  Take care, good night!"  And she left.
