In that Moment

An ordinary day. I was sitting at the airport, waiting for my sons flight to depart, listening to a couple fighting about who was to blame for leaving their sons lunchbox in the hotel room when my phone rang. My partner had gone to hospital with severe chest pain.

In that moment the world around me went silent
In that moment the air was sucked right out of me
In that moment darkness filled my mind
In that moment my knees collapsed beneath me
In that moment my future dreams were shattered
In that moment nothing else mattered
In that moment I knew what love was.

Then came the words, ā€œIā€™m ok.ā€

In that moment air gushed into my lungs,
In that moment the sounds around me erupted
In that moment my mind cleared
In that moment my strength returned
In that moment I said the words
I love you
