Dear Stranger


Dear Stranger,

I thought I was going to have a bad day. I went to bed upset with the world and at myself. The one thing that could’ve made me happy just utterly crushed me. He could’ve said anything nice, but instead he tore me to pieces.

Then you showed up. Sure, it was just a dream, but this one was different.  I’ve felt so many embraces in dreams that made me smile. For some reason, holding your hand was a completely new feeling. It felt like I should’ve been holding it years ago. Plus, you did what no other man could.

All my life I thought that only my friends and family loved me – that if no man wanted me early on, no one was ever going to want me now. When you smiled and placed my hand in yours, I felt something in my heart. No pain, no aches, or anything that could’ve broken me. It was love. Even if in a dream, I could feel it and I never wanted that feeling to go away.

It was just a dream, but I do have to thank you. I was ready to be angry. Upset at everyone, not because they hurt me, but because he did. You changed my perspective. You’re only a stranger in a dream, but at least you made my day better. A good day beats a bad day anytime. I hope to see you again, but if I don’t thanks for holding my hand and thanks for showing me what love is.

Sincerely,

Your Dream Girl
