Her Soul Mate

Posted: November 10, 2010 in writing

She stood in front of him with her chin raised in self-assurance. She knew her heart and mind and now it was time to open up to him. “Him” he is the one who finally won her heart. “He” is the true love of her life. The day she met him she knew that there was something about him that was more. “He” was more than she had ever known. “He” felt more, showed more, loved more and gave more. She opened her mouth and as “He” gazed down at her these are the words he heard.

“You are the first man I have ever truly fallen in love with. I never knew what true love was until I met you. I thought I did several times I’m afraid. But it wasn’t until I met and got to know you that I realized how much I didn’t know about love.”

Pausing for a moment she took a deep breath. Looking back up into his eyes she continued.

“Love is unconditional, it only gives, it should never take. When I think of you all I want to do is give. I want to give all I have to make your life all it can be. I want to give you the strength to live for your dreams even if those dreams don’t include me. I want to show you how to love even if that helps you love someone else.”

“He” opened his mouth to say something and she gently placed her hand over it to stop him.

“No, don’t say anything until I am done.”

Removing her hand she went on.

“I have realized that when you truly love some one else everything  in your life falls into place. All of a sudden everything is clear and right. I don’t need your love in return in order to love you. Don’t get me wrong, to have your love in return would be amazing but it is not required. I will never let you down. I love the moments I have with you and the only thing I hope when you aren’t around is that you are happy. Choose who you will, love who you can, be with the one who makes you happy.

Looking down at her hands she continues once more.

“I never want you to feel as if you have to force yourself to love me in return. If you love me then love me but if not be happy. Your happiness fuels my love for you. As each dream you have is fulfilled my heart swells with more and more love for you. I’m trying to keep my feet on the ground and I love the feelings I have because of you. I hope some day you will find the same kind of love.”

Reaching up she takes his face in her hands.

“I Love You, with all that I have.”

She let go of his face, wraps her arms around him and hugs him for a few moments. Taking a deep breath she steps back, turns and walks away, leaving him with his own thoughts.

“He” reaches out but she is already gone. Her feet just couldn’t keep her on the ground.
