I want to wake up every morning and see your face. It doesn’t matter if you’re awake or sleeping. I’m going to kiss you either way. I want to make breakfast with you and then sit down together and talk about anything. I want to hold your hand whenever we go and just to be close to you. I want to kiss you passionately along the day. When evening comes, I want to eat dinner with you and talk about our day. I want to cuddle with you and tell you how much you mean to me and you’ll do the same. I want to listen to music or watch a movie and kiss. I want to look deep into your eyes and tell you that I love you more than anything. I want to hold you. I want to lay in each other arms until we fall asleep. Then, I want to dream about you until I wake up and see your face again. I want you, always.
