I don't think I believe in God or soul mates, but I believe people come into our lives for a reason.

when you came I swear nothing ever felt so right. the way our hands just seemed to fit. how we could just glance at each other when someone said something stupid and we both knew the other was thinking "are they fucking joking?"

at 2am when I feel everything at once, when I'm crazy, you play my favorite songs and we lay there in each other's arms until my face is dry and I've caught my breath. but I feel so simultaneously comforted and terrified because I've never had something I'm so afraid to lose.

"love is a temporary madness, it erupts like a volcano and then subsides. and when it subsides you have to make a decision. you have to work out whether your roots are so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you ever could part. because that's what love is"

love is not breathlessness or butterflies or goosebumps. that's being in love. love itself is what's left over after being in love has burned away. love is no words at 2am, when I feel like the world is ending, you already know how to make me feel better.

those that truly love each other have roots that grow towards each other underground. and when the leaves and all the pretty blossoms fall away, we realise we are not two trees, but one.

I don't believe in God, but I thank him every day for you.
