kiss me while the beatles play on an old record down in your basement when the only light is coming from the dim bulb by the door. i can make out the outline of your face. i can touch your lips with my fingertips. you’re walking slowly. i know what you’re going to do. i can feel your body pressed up against mine. & then my eyes are fluttering closed & you’re thinking about my eyelashes because you know i didn’t wear makeup & you can’t get over how thick they are. i feel your breath on my hairline. i’m perfectly still. your trace the back of my hand as it lays limply at my side. you’re amazing. & we’re just standing there & it’s agonizing, but the sweetest fucking pain. i nuzzle my face into the crook of your neck. & you kiss my forehead over & over, your hands lacing with mine. & then you just hold me, & i hold back.
the long & winding road. that’s what would’ve been playing if this came true.
“from the moment i saw you, i wanted to meet you.
from the moment i met you, i wanted to know you.
from the moment i knew you, i was in love with you.
from the moment i loved you, i wanted to share my life with you.
and from that moment to this moment, and for all the moments to come i will love you with all my heart.”—
let go and let love write your name in the sky. let go and let love plant your secret garden. let go and let love fertilize the impossible dream. let go and let love prevail when you feel fear. let go and let love choose for you. let go and let love be your flashlight in the dark. let go and let love heal the places that hurt. let go and let love hold you when you feel most alone. let go and let love melt down the frozen ice and bitter cold days of your past. let go and let love cherish you and all living creatures for this is the promise of heaven on earth.
falling in love: falling in love doesn’t begin with falling in love with others. it begins with falling in love with ourselves. loving ourselves us healthy and as God intended. learn to deeply and fully cherish your heart, your soul and your body and only then will you understand what it is to truly love another.
“My wish for you is that you succeed beyond your wildest imagination. That you find love in places that astound you. And that you have friends who call you “just because.” I dream that you go barefoot more than you wear shoes. That you play as hard as you work. And that you laugh more than you cry. I want you to set the bar high, but not too high. To reach for the stars, but with your toes on the ground. And to never, ever stop dreaming.”—
Take a look at yourself in a mirror. Who do you see looking back? Is it the person you want to be? Or is there someone else you were meant to be. The person you should have been, or fell short of? Is someone telling you, you cant or you wont? Because you can. Believe that love is out there. Believe that dreams come true everyday, because they do. Sometimes happiness doesn’t come from money or fame or power. Sometimes happiness comes from friends and family and from the quiet nobility of living a good life. So take a look in that mirror and remind yourself to be happy, because you deserve to be. Believe that. And believe that dreams come true everyday, because they do.
