My Dearest Queen,
Today I was completely surrounded with the thoughts of you. From the moment I awoke, there you were, sitting in my thoughts like a fabulous dream. It was as if you had reached across the many miles that separate us to gently awake me from my silent slumber. As with many nights before, I woke knowing that I had been dreaming about you. I know this, only because of the restful sleep that I have received. I felt as if my soul was smiling. As I got up to greet my day, I walked into the kitchen to grab a cup of coffee, I swear that I could feel your presence in the room. I even expected you to meet me halfway with a fresh cup already poured just the way I liked it. It was a strange feeling to have, but at the same time, it made me happy to think about it. Later in the day, I went out with my son to take care of a few errands that I needed to run. While we were at the grocery store, I swear that I could hear your voice coming from the next isle over. Your sweet southern accent filled the air, and with a burst of energy, I zipped around to see if it could possibly be you. As you are well aware, it was not. Instead, it was a woman that was speaking to her child who was insistently trying to convince her to buy a box of sugary cereal. I must have looked a bit out of place to her, because she looked up at me with a strange smile, then looking at my son, she offered a quick “how are you sweety?” He silently waved, then looked at me for something to say… After that, I could not shake the thought of you. For the rest of the day, I found myself thinking of nothing but you…
What you were doing?
How was your day going?
Were you in a happy mood, or a sad one?
Were you thinking of me?
Thought after thought, I fought off many urges to pick up the phone to call you. I had even typed up a short text message to reach out to you, but I came to my senses before I hit send. All I wanted to do was to let you know how much I loved you. Even now, I was just outside having a smoke in the cool night air. I was looking up at a beautiful crescent moon that hung high in the winter sky and I heard myself ask the heavens if you were looking at the same moon. I know that it may sound a little bit silly, but it is those types of things that help me to deal with our separation…
I love you and miss you my Queen
I hope to dream about you again tonight… May the love that I have for you travel to you on the wings of angels and deliver my kiss to you!
