"You must strive to find your own voice because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are going to find it at all." -John Keating, Dead Poet's Society

Tears of joy are meant for the stars, meant for the universe to be jealous. We cry when the love of our life declares he fell in love with you the moment he saw you. We cry because he said he is thankful for the year he’s known you, fought with you, laughed with you, smiled with you, and most importantly cried with you. We cry because a love like that is meant for the stars and comets and asteroids will never be brighter than the sun shining down on what you have. We cry tears of joy because we hold the universe in our hands. Those are the most rare and beautiful tears to find.
