Only once in your life.

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.
