I imagine the sound of your footsteps getting closer and closer. Each foot hitting the ground…thump…thump….as you approach me from behind. You cover my eyes with your gentle touch. You ask me “guess who?” as if I don’t know that it’s you. Your name at the tip of my tongue… but suddenly I wake up as I realize I was only dreaming. Reality slowly setting in…as the sound of my alarm continues to ring. I move my hand across the bed but to no avail. You’re not there. I suddenly open my eyes as I’m bewildered that you’re not there. I walk downstairs towards the kitchen… and here you are.. glowing as you glance back towards me with that beautiful smile that I fell in love with. Oh how I wish the words written on paper were real.
