Wake me up in the morning with a kiss. I’ll smile back at you with my eyes still closed because I’m tired but then I’ll wipe the sleep from my eyes and I’ll look at you, and smile again. You’re the first person I want to see in the morning every day. I’ll make breakfast. I’ll learn how to make it just the way you like it. Over medium. Something green. A little sriracha on the side. Black coffee. Definitely coffee. We’ll start a routine, and then we’ll forget all about it. Someday we’ll do something new and exciting then talk about our lives together. You’ll laugh because I have unrealistic expectations, but you tell me everything is going to be okay. And I know it will be. Because I look forward to tomorrow when you wake me up in the morning with a kiss.
