We have met by chance that one night under the rain. It was a light rainy night with a refreshing breeze that went through my hair freeing it from its locked curls. It was a night that I would never forget.

The rain started lightly where I had no shelter to cover. But I was drowning in my own thoughts. I haven't noticed the rain nor the darkness prevailing around. I was wondering aimlessly and living in my own bubble in a world which existed only in my daydreams. I was seeing a lot of sunshine, endless flowery trees, and colorful butterflies kissing the flowers petals with their fragile wings. But in my dream, everything was so still and so quiet. I was enjoying the illusion my mind was creating, but I was aware that it was unreal. It was a beautiful image that lived in my mind, which I brought out every now and then, but I never had the chance to live it in real life. Until that night came when I met you...

In the middle of that rain, you showed up. You stood in front of me where our eyes locked. You whispered few words about my wet hair and the cool breeze. You starred to my soul through my eyes like no one has ever looked to me. Your eyes came to my world to brighten it. Your words resonated in my ears endlessly. I no longer remember your words, but I remember your desire to care for me. Your voice calmed my dreamy soul, and brought life to my long-forgotten heart.  Your masculine voice was so seducing and so sensual. You opened my eyes to the real world and made me see its real beauty. You made me eager to live in reality and encouraged me to let go of my fake daydreams. You allowed me to feel your arms invading my recurrent still daydreams pulling me out to the beautiful warm reality. Your existence created much more beautiful memories and made me feel with all of my senses. It was my first time to feel that connection between my heart, my soul and my mind. You came and brought new meanings and definitions for my life.

I was used to daydream to escape the cruel reality. But now, with you and because of you, I diminished my unreal dreams to stay with you with my mind, heart, soul, and full senses. I cherish you for how you brightened my life. I worship you, for who you made me be...
