First World Romance

The movies, the songs

I have seen them all

But I didn’t know that, that isn’t what love is about


I dreamt of what it would be like

A stroll in the park

Or a dinner in the candle light


Yet when it happened

It happened not like that


We didn’t need to stare out at the stars

Nor did we need big romantic gestures


A short smiley made me smile

A “sweet dreams” made me feel loved


Waking up to your text made my day

And our picture on Facebook filled me up


We live the first world romance

Where being apart, we are still together
