LOVE

“Only once in your life, I truly
believe, you find someone who can
completely turn your world around. You
tell them things that you’ve never shared
with another soul and they absorb
everything you say and actually want to
hear more. You share hopes for the
future, dreams that will never come true,
goals that were never achieved and the
many disappointments life has thrown at
you. When something wonderful
happens, you can’t wait to tell them
about it, knowing they will share in your
excitement. They are not embarrassed to
cry with you when you are hurting or
laugh with you when you make a fool of
yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings
or make you feel like you are not good
enough, but rather they build you up and
show you the things about yourself that
make you special and even beautiful.
There is never any pressure, jealousy or
competition but only a quiet calmness
when they are around. You can be
yourself and not worry about what they
will think of you because they love you
for who you are. The things that seem
insignificant to most people such as a
note, song or walk become invaluable
treasures kept safe in your heart to
cherish forever. Memories of your
childhood come back and are so clear
and vivid it’s like being young again.
Colours seem brighter and more brilliant.
Laughter seems part of daily life where
before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at
all. A phone call or two during the day
helps to get you through a long day’s
work and always brings a smile to your
face. In their presence, there’s no need
for continuous conversation, but you find
you’re quite content in just having them
nearby. Things that never interested you
before become fascinating because you
know they are important to this person
who is so special to you. You think of
this person on every occasion and in
everything you do. Simple things bring
them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle
wind or even a storm cloud on the
horizon. You open your heart knowing
that there’s a chance it may be broken
one day and in opening your heart, you
experience a love and joy that you never
dreamed possible. You find that being
vulnerable is the only way to allow your
heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real
it scares you. You find strength in
knowing you have a true friend and
possibly a soul mate who will remain
loyal to the end. Life seems completely
different, exciting and worthwhile. Your
only hope and security is in knowing that
they are a part of your life.”
