Often we come across words, which hold us spellbound, words which compel us to question our preconceived notions, our thoughts about life, love, companionship, happiness etc. Such words make us feel as if they are solely written for us as if instead of us reaching to them, they’ve found us and of course for the better.
Today, my purpose of writing this post is to share with you all one such tryst of mine with a bouquet of words. A collection forever beautiful and thought-provoking.
I wish anyone who reads these, can live them and relate to them, the way I do every time when I come across them.
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 tell hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true and goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments that life had thrown at you. When something wonderful happens you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing that they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you are making 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 things about yourself that will make you feel special and even beautiful about you. There is never any jealousy, pressure but 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 which seem insignificant to most people like 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 that you feel young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where it was earlier infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps you get through the day’s work and always bring a smile on 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 your mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s chance of it getting hurt or broken one day and opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You feel that being vulnerable is the only way your heart can feel true pleasure that’s so real that it scares you. You find strength in knowing that you have a true friend and possibly a soulmate who will remain loyal to you until 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.
On some days on reading this, I feel sad, for I have never had such a person in my life. While on some days I try to compare the qualities mentioned here to the characteristics of those people who are already extremely special in my life. Then I wonder, on finding a soulmate, on the privilege of knowing such a person.
Is it true that everyone in their lifetime finds a soulmate?
Do soulmates really exist?
Thanks for reading 🙂
