I roll over and reach over to your side of the bed.
Nothing.
For a split second I sit up in bed panicking....
But then I smell pancakes and I remember. Our only day off together, and you offered to make me breakfast in bed.
Even though you know I will loose it, because everyone knows food is not to be eaten in bed!
I fall back to bed with a smile on my lips, I must be the luckiest girl in the world.

**************************

I wake up 20 minutes later after dozing off.
Where are you? But more importantly, where are my pancakes?
I get out of bed and head to the kitchen, but then I look down and realize..I'm naked. Smiling sheepishly I grab my silk robe. We wouldn't want your visiting brother to see me like this now would we?
With a hop in my step, I skip downstairs to the kitchen.
Babe! I yell. You are not in the kitchen. The TV in the living room is on, but you are not there watching the Lakers get beaten either. Are you washing your car again? I know how much you love that thing.
No. Not there either.
I walk around to the pool.
Maybe you went for a dip? Even though I know you can't swim.
No not there either. Confused I walk back inside. Where are you? Just then I catch a glimpse of the empty 'dodo' tray.
Ah, of course! You went to get more.
I should have known. That's one of the reasons I love you so much. You know just what to do to keep me happy. Even if its just remembering to buy more 'dodo'.

My heart bursting with pride and love, I climb back upstairs to lie down. I slip out of my robe and climb into bed. I will be right here when you get back.

***********************************

Kaboom! Thunder strikes. I wake up soaked. Sweat? No...tears. And I'm cold. You are still not here. I go to the bathroom to blow my nose. I turn on the lights...but wait...
I'm not in your house. I'm in my..cold apartment. Alone. And my eyes are swollen. And I'm wearing your T-shirt. And then it hit me.

I've been dreaming with a broken heart....

Interesting writeup! Now no body ever tells you that you can't actually sleep with a broken heart because sleep no dey gree come.

Hope you're good chic!
