Can you be in love with someone you’ve never met? I do not know how your skin feels in the early morning light but I know what makes you laugh and I know the way your eyes crinkle and I know that you have a dimple on your right cheek. Can you be in love with someone you’ve never met? I don’t know what your hugs feel like but I know that you would lay down your life for those you care about without a single thought and I know that means me, too. Can you be in love with someone you’ve never met? I don’t know what your lips feel like or how your kisses taste but I know the things that drive you and I know the things that keep you up at night and I know what causes you worry and how when you’re sad you close up and you so desperately just want someone to fight for you. Can you be in love with someone you’ve never met? I have not fallen asleep beside you or woken up to your hands but I know what your voice sounds like in the morning and you know mine. I know your favorite songs and your favorite books, I know your favorite movie and that your favorite color is black and you wish for the ability to draw because you wish to capture so many beautiful things. I know that reading bores you but yet you’ll do it for me because I sent you a novel that captures all the words of my heart and I know that nothing is easy and that we will have to fight every day but you are a solider and you are strong and I know that you’re going to fight for what we’ve got so I will ask you again; can you be in love with someone you’ve never met?
