"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."
