Reality

By A.N. Flores

To wake up
This morning
And realize you have finally come home;


To hold you
Close
And know you were unable to stay away;


To feel you
Breathe
And recognize the beating of your heart;


To hear you
Incoherent
And sense the burning of your touch;


To watch you
Sleep
And see my dreams fulfilled;

To shelter you
Within my arms
And know it's where you want to be.
