Dear future lover,
Lay beside me
as the morning sun peeks through my curtains
and I lean into you,
kissing your cheek.
Wrap your arms around me
as I change from the shirt I slept in beside you,
so I can pull your hands up to my lips
and take in the beauty of your eyes
before they’ve fully awoken.
Lace your fingers in mine
as we walk down the block
to the coffee shop I’ve built a home in,
sharing my sanctuary with you.
Allow me to build beautiful memories in your presence,
for when you are not here
I can draw upon these moments
until I see you again.
