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.– Bob Marley (via littlemiss) (via skysignal) (via lovebot) Via wears heart on sleeve
A sweatshirt, a hickey, and a dear friendship are all I’ll ever get from you. To my surprise, it feels like a pretty sweet deal.Via Dear Old Love
I’m lying alone with my head on the phone,
Thinking of you till it hurts
I know you hurt too but what else can we do?
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile in my heart,
For times when my life feels so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring,
When today doesn’t really know

I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.– Shana Abe (via littlemiss) (via filthypirate) Via filthy pirate
It wasn’t only that you didn’t see him anymore, meet him anymore. You saw his absence and encountered it as something tangible. His not being there was like the sharply outlined emptiness of a photo with a figure cut out precisely with scissors and now the missing figure is more important, more dominant than all the others.– Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon (via overflowing) Via with love & such...
And I want to scream that from the top of my lungs; so loud that everyone will know. But I’m scared. Everything happens for a reason and fate will push you towards your goals but sometimes you have to do certain things on your own to really get what you want. That’s where I fail. Because you make me feel like I’m 10 years old again, a little girl with a crush on a boy. You bring out the shy part of me but at the same time, you make me want to be a better person. Every time you’re in my reach, I never let myself get to you. While you’re so close, you’re also very far away.
My misery is my own fault. I’m scared and I need you to make the move but I know you never will. Yet every time I’m close to letting you go, you show up… almost right in front of me. I need you to come to me, then I’ll know you want me too. What am I supposed to do? Wait?
“Sometimes late at night I think about all the things that have been, all the things that haven’t been and all the things yet to be. If my heart could explode into a billion tiny pieces and scatter themselves all over the world. If I could live on sunlight and the city sounds and fall asleep in those thousands of lighted windows. I wonder if this world will ever make sense to me, if I will ever truly understand anything… and if there’s really anything to understand at all.”
I don’t just want your heart. I want your flesh, your skin and blood and bones, your voice, your thoughts, your pulse and most of all your fingerprints, everywhere.– Isobel Thrilling
We won’t always know whose lives we touched and made better for our having cared, because actions can sometimes have unforeseen ramifications. What’s important is that you do care and you act.– Charlotte Lunsford
