Finally have my own copy of Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav! This is the last copy in Fully Booked and I feel so lucky to finally have it in my hands! This poem, by far, is my favorite (it brought me to tears as well!) I have so much love for this author. Stay amazing, Lang Leav. You make me happy with the use of your words every single day.
One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.
Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.
I’m most thankful to tumblr for introducing me to Love & Misadventure. I know that as I continue on my journey different poems will hit chords at different times in my life. Right now Soul Mates just speaks to meeee! Love this book❤️
