...and in the darkness I saw that the bedroom door was open. It struck me as odd, because I always keep it closed at night. Just then, my wife leaned over me and gave me a little kiss. She quietly went around to the other side of the bed, climbed in under the covers and fell asleep curled up next to me.
Then I woke up. It was just a dream. The door was closed. I was alone in bed.
What a perfectly lonely feeling.
