Shooting Star

We lay together on the dock, underneath the dark sky speckled with shining white dots, listening to the calming sound of the moving water gently hitting the stone, sand, and whatever solid land they could reach for. The cold wind blowing from the sea to the land, making me shiver a bit as I pulled myself closer to you. And just as I blinked, two streaks of light shot through the sky. I held my breath in mild disbelief, wondering if I've really seen what I see.

"Make a wish!" you said.

I took a deep breath and silently read the first thing that came into my mind.

"I wish this moment would last forever."
