I cried……….because it was all a dream

I woke up in tears,

Floods of endless tears,

Like the gates of my emotional reservoir had been opened,

And there was no way I could stop.

I was crying because of a dream,

A beautiful dream,

A simple dream,

My dream.

I was crying because I wanted it to be real,

I wanted everything in it to be true,

I was crying because I could see our forever,

Stretching out in front of us.

I was crying because I want it to be our future,

I was crying because it might not be possible,

I was crying because I needed it to be real,

I cried because it was all a dream.

 

In the dream we were in our kitchen,

And I was making breakfast,

You were reading the paper,

The kids running around carrying the cat.

You were in your suit,

Smart and mature,

I was in skinny jeans and a baggy jumper,

My hair up in a messy bun.

The radio’s on in the background,

And you stand up,

Walk over to me,

And kiss me.

But then I pull away,

And give you a coy smile,

Because the bacon is about to burn,

And the kids are playing with their food and the cat simultaneously.

I turn around to tell them to leave the cat alone,

And to eat their food,

But just as I am about to call their names,

I wake up.

It wasn’t perfect,

But we were happy,

And that’s all that matters.
