Near to You

"I loved him. There's no other way to put it. He was my one and only, but he wasn't what I expected." Sara was in love. Wholeheartedly, and completely in love. But he didn't love her back, and they both suffered for it. Now, Sara has to recover from a heart torn and bruised and ripped in two by a man she trusted. But will she have to do it alone, or will she learn to trust another?

6. Near to You

The next day, I stayed downstairs all the while Harvey was away at work. 

I baked cookies for the children at the park, and waited for Harvey to come back so he could help me walk down there.

But I had something I had to tell him first.

When he walked in, I smiled at him, and gave him a cup of coffee with a cookie.

'Thanks.' He said, smiling at me.

'Um, Harvey? I need to tell you something.' I said, chewing my lip and folding my arms across my chest.

'Go ahead Sara.' He said, waiting for me to start.

'I... I know I'm... broken. No, wait. Don't interrupt me, please. I know that I'm not completely... healed yet. But, when you're with me, the pain in my chest... doesn't hurt so much. When I'm near you, I feel... safe. I've never felt that before. You make me... happy. I don't want to be anywhere without you, because you're wonderful, and I know that one day, I'll love you. It's going to take time, but I know that I will love you. I'm trying with all my heart to be normal. I don't love him any more, and I still need time to recover, but I'm asking you to stay with me, because I need you. I'm sorry, but I only know that I'm... better where you are. I'm sorry I can't say I love you right now, but I feel that you love me, and that you deserve an explanation. Sorry.' Throughout speaking, my eyes hadn't left the floor, and I had squeezed my arms tightly around my body, holding myself together. 

I heard Harvey stand up, and felt his hands rest on my shoulders.

'I know Sara. I'll wait, because I already love you, and I won't disappoint you, or betray you, or hurt you. I'll protect you and love you with all my heart and soul, and I'll heal you on the inside.' He pulled me into his arms and I started to cry, for the first time, out of happiness.

I now knew, that love was when someone put you before everything else in their life. When you felt happy, and safe, and knew that you could not feel better when you were anywhere without them by your side.

I was not a failure, I was not worthless.

I was loved, for the first time, I was loved.

And slowly, I began loving again. Harvey had healed my heart till it was beating again, and I became a better person.

Near to you, I am healing

but it's taking so long.

Though he's gone

and you are wonderful

it's hard to move on,

Yet, I'm better near to you.
