As a child i always asked the question, “how do you know?” The answer given was never sufficient, it was simply “you just do”. In the past I have pondered this question but as of now in my present, it has been made clear to me, as to what the answer is, Love- a word with countless connotations, denotations and emotions associated with it, is unique to each individual, but what links individuals is that they realize what they have. People always say Love is blind, but True Love, between two people is eye opening. This is my definition of love.
Of course the first conversation was simple, as we had never met, but I think perhaps it was?is better that way, because i developed such a deep respect and admiration for him. But once we met I feel that was it, there was a spark. His smile mesmerized me, his voice-captivating, as he sang each time he gazed into my eyes I could not shake the feeling that he was special, different somehow. A feeling I can’t explain came over me and after he left I could not stop imagining his smile,the passion with which he sang amazed me..even though he wasn’t even trying to.Perhaps it was his singing or his smile, or his apparent good nature, but I knew this boy was blessed, because that is the only explanation for how amazing he is. So, our conversations grew longer as we grew closer. The more I got to know about him the more I found myself full of wonderment, that somebody like this could exist. So with each look, each embrace, and each goodbye I find I am consumed with a feeling previously unknown. He knows the real person I am, and hope to be, and he accepts it. While there may be plenty about me he doesn’t know, for the first time in my life, I find I am not scared to let my walls down and let him know those things. Because of him I am not scared anymore I am see the good things that I am blessed with and I think of him, because he is a blessing as well. When I see the bad things in life I have more courage to face them because he has shown me the person that I can be. He may not even be aware of it he has shown me what trust is and i trust him with my whole being. I know that his eyes hold no judgement where i am concerned and i know that he won’t look at me and see only the flaws; for this I trust him more than i have trusted any person. I not only trust him but I feel safe with him. These words may seem synonymous, they hold and entirely different meaning for me. When I’m with him, its as though nothing else exists, nothing can harm me, no thought, word, or person can hurt me when his arms are around me. All essence of time has disappeared and nothing can touch us. Now i finally understand when people say they feel like the only two people in the world. Before i thought this idea stupid, but it has become a reality to me.The idea that there is a person your meant to be with- a soulmate- one true love, also seemed absurd but now I find I fully believe these ideas to exist, for I think i have found mine. People always think the next relationship is different, this one truly is. I have no need to try and convince myself nor anyone else of this truth,since it is abundantly clear. He treats me with respect and makes me want to be better. He brings out the best in me, and as far as I can tell he is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
The butterflies I get when he talks about the future, the smile on my face when he sings, the comfort I get from his embrace and the things I feel in my heart can only be explained as love, this relationship.L o v e.I am not scared to start again because our beginning has already been sweeter than any previous experience I’ve had.. He is joy, laughter, love and a blessing, the best thing though is that he is mine. He is so unique to anyone else, and I thank God for him everyday.
