You know what I love about us? It’s never having to ask if you love me. Now that’s true love. With others I had to ask and while they would say of course I do. Did they really? Maybe they thought they did, but it wasn’t true love. It wasn’t that love you search your whole life for and you’re lucky if you find it.
With you I never had to ask if you would be there always. With others I had to. You know why? Because I couldn’t really be sure. And when a little rain fell you know what? They weren’t.
I know what we have without having to ask because every minute of every day your actions make it crystal clear, tomorrow and every tomorrow after that rain or shine, good or bad when I wake your face will be the first one I see.
What about those who have to ask? I would say they shouldn’t. They should simply enjoy the moment. But they should also understand that the person they’re with at that moment is only that, a person they’re with at that moment, nothing more nothing less. But that’s cool, everyone can’t have what we have. True love is not meant to be found in every relationship, but every relationship can bring happiness. I Just hope they treat each relationship in their heart and in their mind accordingly and at the end of the day they’ll be alright Who knows maybe they’ll get lucky enough to find what we have.
Surrounded by friends and families the room counted down the final seconds of the decade and as the clock struck midnight exploded into cheers and laughter, hugs all around and glasses loudly clinking together as people toasted the new year, the new decade and amid it all I wondered to myself are you out there?
I have searched my whole life for you and on a few occasions, I thought I had found you. I used to think I knew what you would look like, who you would be but as the years went by I realized that I couldn’t know. You could be the person who smiles at me on the train, the one who I meet at the grocery store or bump into on the street. You could even be here tonight. You could be anyone, but I suspect I’ll know it when I find you. I’ll know the first time our smiles find each other across a crowded room.The first time we hold each other hand. The first time we look into each other eyes and our lips meet in a kiss. A kiss that leaves us lost in the moment and stirs our emotions like no other kiss has ever did before. I’ll know it because that kiss without any words will say I found you and I love you.
I look around the room and the glasses are still clinking; the smiles are still all around and then out of nowhere your smile captures my eye from across the room.I walked over smiled and said Happy New Year and I thought to myself yes, I know you’re out there and maybe just maybe we just shared our first smile.
Each day I awake anxious to continue my conversation with you, to thank you for the chance to walk another day upon the Earth. I am encouraged to believe that no matter where the day shall take me, I never walk alone. Each day my life is a little more enriched by the knowledge you are my savior, and my soul burns with the light of a thousand lights, knowing that because of my faith in you and your love for me, nothing is impossible. I endeavor to let nothing or no one come between me and my faith. I am reassured in the belief that as I continue to give you praise and strengthen my faith in you, nothing can diminish your love for me. I revel in the knowledge that I need not worry about earthly problems because you help carry my load and, in your ultimate wisdom, will bestow on to me the strength and courage to overcome. I am fortunate enough to have found you, for you are indeed my best friend and my strongest ally, and it is for that reason that I am truly blessed.
Sometimes our love for someone can blind us to their true face. It is at these times God will darken our skies just a little. This is not a test for us but for them, a test to see if they can stand the rain or if it was just words. It is God’s way of washing away those who are not good enough to be in our lives. We may not always understand this and their loss may be painful, but it is only temporary and when our skies begin to brighten again our true soulmate will be waiting for us at the end of the rainbow.
