Summary: Alex helps Isabel let him go


In Your Dreams…

Did I ever tell you
How you live in me


“Why Alex? Just tell me why?” Isabel asked as Alex appeared in front of her.

Every waking moment
Even in my dreams


He smiled gently at her and she was once again captivated by his quirky yet sweet smile. “I missed you.” He told her, not answering her question.

And if all this talk is crazy
And you don't know what I mean


He held out his hand to her as the scene around them changed.

Does it really matter, oh
Just as long as I believe


Isabel found herself on a black and white checker dance floor with a musical band playing from the stage nearby. Her pajamas had changed into a beautiful red gown with her hair lying in loose curls around her shoulders. When she reached out to take Alex’s outstretched hand she found out that she was wearing white elbow gloves.

She forgot her question as she moved into Alex’s arms and the beginning of a slow ballad rippled across the floor. She buried her head in Alex’s shoulder as he held her close to him, stroking her hair while gently swaying across the dance floor.

“I always loved you in red.” He whispered to her.

I will love again
Though my heart is breaking
I will love again



She looked up into his beautiful eyes and felt floored by the love behind them.

“I love you Alex.” She told him.

“I know.”

Stronger than before
I will love again


“Why? Why is this happening? This isn’t real is it?” Isabel asked him, once again reminded of the truth.

Alex again smiled at her, but with a hint of sadness. “It’s as real as you want it to be.”

Even if it takes a lifetime to get over you
Heaven only knows


“Why us? Why you?” She asked him. But he only shook his head.

“It was destiny.”

I will love again
I will love again


“Why are you here?” She asked him.

“To help you let go of me.” He told her with a sad smile.

She kept quiet, just dancing with him. She held on tighter to him, not wanting to let go. She felt that if she did he would once again disappear forever.

People never tell you
The way they truly feel
I would die for you gladly
If I knew it was for real


They danced like that for quite a while, just the two of them, enjoying the feeling of being with each other again. Then Alex gently pried himself away.

“I have to go Izzy.” He told her.

“No! Don’t go Alex!” Isabel begged him, clutching his arm.

So if all this talk sounds crazy
And the words don't come out right
Does it really matter
If it gets me through this night


“Izzy…”

“Don’t leave me again Alex!” Isabel said with desperation. Her eyes were pleading as she whispered, “Please!”

I will love again
Though my heart is breaking
I will love again


“I wish I didn’t have to. But I have no choice.”

“Will I ever see you again?” She asked, knowing that she could do nothing to stop him from leaving.

Stronger than before
I will love again
Even if it takes a lifetime to get over you
Heaven only knows


“You call and I’ll be there.” He promised her.

She began to cry softly and let go of his hand. He tilted her face so that she was looking into his eyes.

“Promise me you’ll move on.” He asked her.

If I'm true to myself
Nobody else can take the place of you


“Alex…” She sobbed.

But I've got to move on
Tell me what else can I do ?


“Promise me…” he asked her, not letting her look away.

I will love again
Though my heart is breaking
I will love again
Stronger than before,


“There will be no other.” She told him through her tears.

I will love again
Even if it takes a lifetime to get over you


“You have to make sure there is.”

Heaven only knows
I will love again


“There will never be another you!” she told him.

I will love again
Though my heart is breaking
I will love again
Stronger than before


Alex smiled. “Second best will do.”

Isabel let out a weak laugh. Finally, she nodded. “I will move on…for you.”

I will love again
Even if it takes a lifetime to get over you
Heaven only knows
I will love again


Alex pulled her into a hug. “Just never forget me…”

I will love again
Though my heart is breaking
I will love again
Stronger than before


Isabel kissed him once last time. “Never…” She vowed.

I, I will love again
Even if it takes a lifetime to get over you
To get over you
Heaven only knows


Then, amid tears his image wavered before disappearing away.

I know one day I'll love again
I know one day I'll love again


Isabel woke up in her bed with a start. She sat up in her bed with tears streaking down her face.

You can't stop me from loving again
Breathing again


She switched on her lamp and picked up the picture of Alex by her bedside. She touched his face gently as her eyes filled with tears.

Feeling again
I know one day I'll love again, again, again, again, again


* There will be no other like you Alex… I will love you forever… *She thought as she gave a silent farewell to her love.


THE END
