Dream of a (Perfect) Future

I dreamed about you and me getting back
Together, but this time it was perfect. I did
Not tell you, fearing it can get me off track
Again and lose focus on the now. I got rid

Of the notion that everything can ever be
And will be perfect again like it was when
We began. I dreamed of walking to the sea
As I see you standing there with a big grin

And smile just for me as the gentle motion
Of the waves was the only sound I heard
As my heart feels calm. You are the lotion
To soothe wounds that hurt and the words

That no longer stung. I dreamed of our future
Children who are born into this world and
The love shines from their souls with fewer
Hate. I dreamed of me holding your hand

And of a love that was so similar to what
My parents have every day, but no one
Could replicate. I dreamed of us shutting
Out the hate that overshadows the sun

We grasped in between our fingertips.
I dreamed of us surviving the apocalypse.
