I want someone who I will wake up to every morning and smile. I want someone who I can raise our children with. I want someone to spend our 25th marriage anniversary with. I want someone who I can feel young forever with. I want someone who I can love and trust till the day I die. I want someone who will hold my hand when I am alone. I want someone who I can spend my old age with. If you can’t stay, don’t bother making me love you…
He is fiercely compassionate,
as he immerses himself in your pain, so he can cry, weep, mourn, with you
his soul latches on to your sorrow and makes it his own too,
so he can understand the landscape of your trauma, so he can create plans to navigate the battlefield,
so he can walk with you and lead you out of the storm.
People always say that there is always one person that will change your life, but they never say that the person will stay. That person comes into your life, changes you, and leaves. And you can never be your old self after that person leaves.
