It’s that moment you meet someone and know instantly you could love them. Truly love them. All it takes is one single moment to realize that this could really last. Only you know it’s impossible. He’s there and you’re here, miles apart.
Sitting in the sand, cooled by the early morning air but knowing it’ll soon warm by sunrise. Gazing into the ocean, waves crashing in the background. Laughing with that giddy laugh, face flushed from the sweet words coming out of his mouth. His warm touch pulling you in close managing to make the cold night warm in his arms. The flirtatious sound in his voice right before he places a kiss on your forehead. Looking over, deep in his eyes as you realize he’s about to pull your face in close to his. The butterflies in your stomach as his hand moves towards your face. His sweet warm lips sending a spark through your entire body. Somehow this person, only knowing him for a few short hours, breaks your walls down. He makes you feel something you haven’t in a long time. He gets you to talk about your dreams, the dreams only your close friends would ever know. He makes you feel comfortable, something hard to do. No fears. Only that of knowing this night will come to an end too soon.
How is it that a person can make you feel so at ease? Like you’ve known them forever when in reality, you’ve known them for less than a days time. How can one person leave such a lasting impression?
His laugh, weird but cute. His perfect smile. His piercing blue eyes. His goofy, yet appealing sense of humor. His confidence. His belief in God. The understanding tone in his voice. The funny sayings you’ve only heard from him. His accent, surprisingly attractive although not southern. The ease he has at making something awkward seem so normal. His warmth. His respect. The lines he feeds you, making you believe your special. And maybe you are. He gives you that hope, false or not. The way he jokes about loving you, even only after a day. And the love you see escape from his soul, shining outwardly to others.
How can one person leave such a huge impression? One that continues to creep into your mind day after day?
Is it possible that there’s really only one person in the world for you. One single person. Your soulmate? What if you just walked away from him, never to see him again. Will fate bring you together? And if it does, how long will it take.
Will your memories of this moment last only a short time, before a new one slowly washes the old one away? No. Don’t let those memories fade away.
Hold them close to your heart. Now. And forever.
