To the Man of My Dreams and…My Future Reality (Louis Toliver Jr)


I imagine you holding the door open to our new home
Newly married, you come in behind me smiling
You wrap your arms tightly around me, our heads touching
You say “We’re Home” and I turn and kiss you

I imagine the birth of our first child, adoption, of course
The fact that we can love a child is all we want, we win
We have many more children, we love them all, of course
Their ambitions high like their parents, all we want, we win

I imagine a marriage and life filled with best memories
All of our traveling adventures, experiencing the world
Coaching our children to make the best decisions in life
Growing old together and having the most youthful love

And, though it’s bittersweet, I imagine the day I lose you
Not that anything went wrong, it’s just that we are strong
It is an exciting thought, our love makes death seem easy
Because one earthly death will never break our energy apart

Whatever form YOU, man of my dreams, come in
YOU, my future reality man, will constantly evolve with me
It is YOU I see in this life and also in the next
I shall never settle for anything less than YOU

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
