This summer I want to be by your side. Even if it’s just for a little while. I want to gaze at the stars in the still of the night. I want us to lay on our backs in the grass and sing our favorite songs with no shame. I want to go for a drive with no agenda. I want to get wrapped up in your arms. I want to hear you laugh at all my terrible jokes, and be able laugh in return when you laugh. I want to take pictures of nature around us in full summer bloom. I want to dance in the rain and not worry about what other people think. I want to hold your hand and smile at you for no reason, other than to express my fondness for you. I want to. So badly.
