A part of our life that was taken from him once, twice; maybe more; now finding the love of his life who is waiting nervously, as he runs his fingers through her hair.
Like Pessoua, at the last step, and can’t hide his smile anymore, watching his eyes widen as he sees her; he looks down shyly takes her to the floor.
