Only once in your life,
I truly believe,
you find someone
who can completely
turn your world around.

You tell them things
that you’ve never shared with another soul
and they absorb everything you say
and actually want to hear more.

You share hopes for the future,
dreams that will never come true,
goals that were never achieved
and the many disappointments
life has thrown at you.

When something wonderful happens,
you can’t wait to tell them about it,
knowing they will share in your excitement.

They are not embarrassed
to cry with you
when you are hurting
or laugh with you
when you make a fool of yourself.

Never do they hurt your feelings
or make you feel like
you are not good enough,
but rather they build you up
and show you the things about yourself
that make you special and even beautiful.

There is never any pressure,
jealousy or competition
but only a quiet calmness
when they are around.

You can be yourself
and not worry about
what they will think of you
because they love you for who you are.

The things that seem insignificant to most people
such as a note, song or walk
become invaluable treasures kept safe
in your heart to cherish forever.

Memories of your childhood come back
and are so clear and vivid
it’s like being young again.

Colours seem brighter and more brilliant.
Laughter seems part of daily life
where before it was infrequent
or didn’t exist at all.

A phone call or two during the day
helps to get you through a long day’s work
and always brings a smile to your face.

In their presence,
there’s no need
for continuous conversation,
but you find you’re quite content
in just having them nearby.

Things that never interested you before
become fascinating
because you know
they are important to this person
who is so special to you.

You think of this person
on every occasion
and in everything you do.

Simple things bring them to mind
like a pale blue sky, gentle wind
or even a storm cloud on the horizon.

You open your heart
knowing that there’s a chance
it may be broken one day
and in opening your heart,
you experience a love and joy
that you never dreamed possible.

You find that being vulnerable
is the only way to allow your heart
to feel true pleasure that’s so real
it scares you.

You find strength in knowing
you have a true friend
and possibly a soul mate
who will remain loyal to the end.

Life seems completely different,
exciting and worthwhile.

Your only hope and security
is in knowing that
they are a part of your life.
