I hope that someday you find someone that gives you butterflies the moment you meet them. And that the first time you touch, it feels like electricity is running through your body. I hope your first date is magical and your first kiss, earth shattering. I hope that when you’re with them, you never want to leave. I hope you are the first and last thing they think about every day.
I hope you play it cool in front of people, but can’t keep your hands off each other in private. I hope the only thing they ever steal from you are glances and kisses. And I hope that they make you whole, instead of tearing you apart. I hope that when you give them your heart, they don’t break it. I hope you have a love worthy of a fairy tale.
I hope you take the two hand touch rule a little too literally when you play football with them and their friends. And that you hold hands under the dinner table while you down a whole bottle of wine between the two of you. I hope that when they look at you, they get lost in your eyes, and I hope that the things they tell you aren’t just things you want to hear, but things they want to say. I hope that you fit in their arms better than the last piece of a puzzle, and that you always feel safe when they hold you. I hope that when you fight, you fight hard, but that when you love, you love harder.
I hope that when you kiss, you kiss passionately. I hope that you kiss like every kiss is your last. I hope you need to breathe their air just as much as you need your heart to beat. I hope that when you dance, you don’t need music. I hope that when you’re together, the world around you is jealous. I hope that when you walk in the room, a light ignites inside them. I hope that they can’t live without you. I hope that they make it hard for you to sleep, because reality is finally better than your dreams.
I hope that you love them wholly, the good and the bad. I hope that the days you spend apart are hard, but the days you spend together make up for it. I hope that once you find them, you can’t picture your life without them. I hope that they take your breath away. I hope that, together, you create happiness. I hope that with them, you’re not afraid of the future, but excited for it. I hope that, every day, they tell you how much they love you. I hope that when you find them, you realize it before it’s too late. I hope that you take them and love them and never let them go. I hope you find it.
