“You’re my soulmate” she whispers quietly into his ear.
The blush creeping from her neck, to her cheeks, to her ears and the back of her head. She knew if she looked at the mirror, it would look exactly like a tomato but she didn’t care. It took her 2 years and many questions in between to get her to this place, to know that this man she has been seeing, this man she has fallen head over heels for, this man she cannot imagine life without is her soul mate.
She went from this shy, timid girl who had a very dysfunctional family where love never made any sense to this girl who believes with all her heart, believes with a fiery passion that love exists, love is fragile and she would give up her life to protect it.
She looked into his eyes and saw their history. She saw him jumping through the fires to rescue her, she saw him giving his last cent to provide for her, she saw him in his weakness and loved him even more, she saw him in his strength shielding her from pain, she saw them coming together and making the most amazing plans, she saw him hugging her, supporting her when she was at her weakness, how he saw her at her ugliest and instead of feeling repulsed, he called her the most beautiful woman on earth, how they went through rejections together, how they went through hardships together- and the most beautiful of them all, even with all the drama, the hardships, the pain, instead of tearing them apart, their love for each other only grew stronger.
Never once did they complain about the situation, never once did they feel that life would be easier without the other, never once did they whine about how tough it is. For them, it was all in, no one gets left behind. And today, she looks into his eyes, and as tears wells in hers, she knows with all her heart, he is her soul mate.
Today, she believes that there is no one else in the world that can replace him, no one else that will understand her the way he does, no one else is good enough or can even compare to him. He is the only one, and she would die over and over and over again, if she ever lost him.
She laughed at how she believed he was the one when they got together, but now, now she is sure they were meant to be together.
“You are my soul mate” she smiles.
Something a little bit more personal 🙂 And based very much on this quote:
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life? … to strengthen each other…to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
