A Fantasy...



I have this fantasy that I'm almost afraid to speak out loud...so I'm writing it down. Here it is:

There is a moment...backstage...in a studio...or some location of the like where our paths will cross again. You will look up into my eyes and that flash of recognition will dance across them. You will reach down into your pocket, pull out your Blackberry and bring up a photo that was taken many months ago. It will be a group picture. You will ask, "Is this you?" pointing to a brunette in a green shirt with lace on the sleeves.

"Yes," I will reply, surprised. "Why?"

"Because when I look at you and your smile in this photo, everything always seems better," you will reveal.

"Do you look at this photo often?" I will ask, anxious to know the answer.

With a smile on your face and looking down shyly, you will answer, "Yes."

And tears form instantly in the corners of my eyes as my head falls into my hands and my heart almost cannot bear this revelation. All this time I thought I had been invisible to you. All this time, I had thought that my face was just one of the many thousand random faces that have crossed your path over these many months.

And all this time...you had held my face so carefully next to your heart.
