I woke up this morning from a sweet dream too early
Before the sunlight began to creep in through the blinds
Before my feet touched the cold, bare floor,
Only to find myself in a sweeter reality.
You see, I woke up and found myself next to you.
I woke up and remembered how much you mean to me,
How lucky I am
To have your love and respect and compassion always.
I woke up and recalled
How you hugged and kissed me the other day
Like you had been far away for a long time
And we had missed each other terribly
When in reality, I had just gone to the next room.
I woke up and mused to myself
How you always take my hand in yours
Like it is a precious, valuable, tender object
And I can positively feel your warmth and affection
Flowing through my own as a result.
I woke up and couldn’t help but realize
That no ideal fantasy nor pristine image nor epic tale
Can compare with what we have and what we share together.
When a dream becomes a reality and reality becomes a dream,
and you feel closer to heaven while remaining on Earth,
That is the epitome of love.
And the best part, my Dear?
That is still yet to come, each day we have together.
