Tonight, I dream of steaming teacups sitting beside your scotch.
I dream of waking up under blankets to the smell of coffee in the pot.
The wonderments of dinners sat at the table side by side.
I dream of evenings in silence snuggled tightly with my guy.
Walking our dogs on the weekends with our fingers linked hand in hand.
I dream of distant travels and exploring distant lands.
Tonight I dream of distance coming to an end,
Because all I want is my lovely, my bestest, my Mr. Beardfaced friend.
September 2011: In an anxious realization of time running out before a departure flight overseas, our first ‘I love you‘ was exchanged at the airport. We hugged, said our good-byes, and international long distance commenced.
October 2013: In an anxious realization of weekend plans ruined and time running out before another departure flight home at the airport, a marriage proposal was presented and I said ‘Yes’. We hugged, I cried, and I didn’t get on the flight. And the goal to eliminate our distance commenced.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you,
It beats only for you.
Your love is like an ocean
that always takes me home
Whispering wind is blowing
telling me I’m not alone
