Awake, Dreaming

I woke up this morning and I could feel your presence. I turned to look and saw you there, laying next to me. You were sleeping so peacefully. I wanted to reach out and touch your face, feel your lips beneath my fingertips, but I was afraid. So I just lay there staring into the dark at your form in my bed. I felt so warm and could feel your breath from across the space within the bed. My movements gentle as I turned to face you form to form. I didn't  want to wake you. I didn't want this dream to end. As I lay next to you..... next to the form that would be you, I cried a little. Just to know you were thinking of me and I of you, was enough to make me dream of you.  Yet, as I lay here within my bed, staring lovingly at you, I know you are not truly there. You are a dream I have and hope one day to share.
