And a bit of song fic.


Silence
Stretching out between us
I dream of a presence
With essence
And absence of doubt

It was yet another sunset. Usually the most beautiful time of a day when all you cared was warmth of the setting sun and magnificent display of colours.
Only today there was a small figure beside sharing the view.

Come closer
Come and stay with me now
Help me reconcile
Come and stay a while
And I will find a home
Because we love till the end
We love till the end of the day
Of the day

The figure next to him moved closer, seeking the friendly company and feeling of a warm body beside.

"Hey buddy, looking for a company?" Jane asked the lonely pup.
The dog's big, blue-ish eyes looked up at the blonde man. The look in its eyes told more than thousand words could.

Distant
Shifty-eyed and restless
I dream of a presence
With essence
And absence of doubt

The animal took it as cue to move closer. To let the man be his friend if just for this one evening.

Come closer
Come and stay with me now
Help me reconcile

Patrick didn't mind the dog. He actually enjoyed the company.

Come and stay a while
And I will find a home

He'd felt so lonely lately that even the feeling of another breathing creature of living made him feel much better.

Because we love till the end
We love till the end of the day

Of the day

So they kept sitting and watching the beauty of the changing colours and that magical feeling of a sunset...

Because we love till the end
We love till the end of the day

Of the day
Of the day

The End
