You gently take my hand
And you tell me that you love me.
You pull me into your strong arms
As you whisper into my ear that you're so sorry.
I tell you I don't know –
After all, you did hurt me.
How can I see past this?
How can I pretend you didn't make me cry more than just slightly?
You pull away, but only just a little.
Your blue eyes stare into the brown of mine.
You ask me what else you could do –
Build a time machine and go back in time?
I can't help it – I giggle.
You always did know how to make me smile.
I tell you that yes, I can find a way to forgive you
But be patient, because I know it could take a while.
You grin and hold me close.
Soon enough, you begin to lean in for a kiss.
Without hesitation, I lean in, too
Because for these past four weeks, this is what I've missed.
But stop! Freeze it right there –
Everything isn't as it seems.
The shrill of my alarm clock wakes me,
And I sigh – I guess it was only just a dream.
