Reflections Before Bedtime #55

By: Gabriela Yareliz

I don’t want to be the option you are afraid of–

I want you to see my love and be sure.

I’m standing here without my gown; I’m Cinderella after midnight.

I hope you will realize I’m the one who danced with you all night.

I hope you decide to find me.

I hope you decide to stay.

But even if you don’t, I know I will be okay.

I already experienced the magic. I know I am steady and true.

Do you want to extend this magic, ignoring the clock, into eternity? That question is waiting on you.
