Is this just a dream?
Is this true, is this real?
I feel you close.
I hear your heartbeat.
I see your smile.
And I melt in your eyes.
I couldn’t hold your gaze for too long
Though I wanted to— so much.
I long for your embrace—
The security from a single touch…
I remain silent—
Wanting to speak of words I do not know…
Countless waves crash onshore.
And then I heard you whisper…
Your voice echoing in my heart,
Repeating a question, over and over,
“What if this is only a dream?”
I struggled for words, you patiently waited.
I burrowed my feet beneath the damp sand,
I opened my mouth and said,
“If this is only a dream,
I’ll enjoy every minute,
Every second that you are here.”
The cold breeze sent shivers down my spine.
But it can never put off
The flame that has warmed my heart.
I smiled and breathed deeply.
You did the same…
If this is only a dream,
Would I still want to wake up?
