A Brand New Day

The sharp ringing of the alarm woke me up. As I shook off the sleep from my eyes I glanced at her, sleeping cozily, nestled in the far side of the bed. Snug as a bug in a rug, as she would say.

I smiled and leaned closer to her ear and slowly blew air into her ear. I could see her wrinkle her pretty nose and turn towards me, still fast asleep.

I leaned forward and softly brushed my lips against hers. I could feel her lips respond as she softly kissed me back. I wondered if she knew what a great kisser she was even in her sleep. I finally glanced at the clock again and swore under my breath.

Kissing her beautiful forehead I eased out of the bed. The curtains on the window fluttered welcoming the cold morning breeze. I stretched contendedly and slowly walked towards the bathroom.

Just as I opened the bathroom door, I could hear her stirring in bed. I turned to look at her. I could see that she had turned in bed and was slowly shiverring. I walked back to the bed and pulled up blanket to her chin. Just as I did that, her beautiful eyes fluttered open.

She half smiled and said, Heeey in her sleep filled voice. I told her to go back to sleep, she nodded and closed her eyes. I leaned forward again and softly kissed those beautiful eyes. She reached out of the blanket and held my hand, Don't leave me, she said quietly. It's only for the day baby, I'll be back later in the night, I replied.

Don't leave me, she repeated. I rubbed her shoulder, waiting for her to drift back into sleep and then kissed her forehead again. I slowly made my way to the bathroom without making a noise. My feet felt like they were gliding on air, I guess they haven't touched solid ground ever since I met her.

In a while, I was ready for my long day at work. I walked out of the bathroom and looked at the bed only to find that she wasn't there. Her side of the bed was unruffled.

I smiled sadly and shook my head, she wasn't there because she never was in the first place. I'd made up all of that in my own mind, the overactive imagination that I have.

As much as I was disappointed, I knew that someday pretty soon, she'd really be here forever.
