While your eyes feast on the dancing lights
shimmering upon your tree,
I hope you take the time to remember
and dream a little dream of me.
Though worlds apart, I cannot dismiss
the memory of your smile.
Knowing that you hold me close to your heart
only makes the longing worthwhile.
Moments spent suspended in your gaze
seem like a lifetime ago.
But those emotions bubble under my skin,
the seed just waiting to grow.
While visions of you dance in my head
and your laughter hangs in the air,
I long for the day I can look in your eyes
and the feelings we have can be shared.
The vast chasm of our realities
hold you so far out of touch.
My one wish for Christmas this year
is that I didn’t want you so much.
