Imagine that this never happened
Imagine we were never acquainted
Imagine the written note was never sent to you, my love…
Imagine your response was a dream
The moment that I won’t redeem
Last day of school was the first last day, that didn’t break my heart, 14th of June became the best day.
I never came to you, you never held me close in your arms,
I could hold myself back and not get lost in the gleam in your eyes.
But it occurs to me that I, I don’t wanna imagine,
I don’t wanna keep this vision
Of not having you in my life
Of how you never made me part of your life
Of us only existing in my imaginary camera that never belonged to your collection.
Imagine you never knew I loved London
So much that I traveled too often
I wouldn’t have someone to keep me company on my adventure, a tour guide charging me an ice-cream per hour.
Imagine you never knew sometimes I’m a cat on hot bricks
You never composed my songs, where your melody eased away my pain left in my lyrics.
But I, I don’t wanna imagine,
I don’t wanna keep this vision no more.
I don’t wanna love, if it’s not you
I don’t wanna live in this imagination anymore.
I don’t wanna imagine you to be untouchable, like the sun.
I don’t wanna imagine watching you from afar, radiant to everyone.
But if imagination came true, I’d miss whispering “olive juice”
I’d miss your smile at the door when you leave for work
I’d miss our road trip with tons of snacks in your 4-seat car to bits.
I’d miss touching your right cheek and ask you if those were dimples or wrinkles
I’d miss the beautiful sound you make on your piano while I lay on the lid.
Suddenly, your movement startles me
I turn to see you sleep safe and soundly.
Eyes closed, you put your arms around me and whisper:
“Come closer, and imagine marrying me…”
