Today he looked at me, i felt his warmth,

the tingles, life was colourful,

his smile awakened me, i felt his touch, the shiver of delight,

his soft caress, my eyes lighten, i lean forward,

anticipation within, his look striped me bare,

i squint as i look up, his eyes skim over me, the pride in his eyes,

he leans forward, my breath stills, i watch as his lips part.

the motion stiled in memory,  yes,  i'm alive inside.

his scent awakens me, emotions swirl within,

joy, happiness, uncertainity, does his look say acceptance?

i wake, nothing but a dream.

yes, just a dream of hope and love.

only a dream although so real.
