Have you ever?

Have you ever wanted to talk to someone just for the pleasure of hearing their voice?

Have you ever wanted to talk to someone just for the pleasure of the conversation?

Have you ever thought about someone just because of the smile they bring to your face?

Have you ever felt so strongly about someone that you couldn't stop thinking about them?

Have you ever imagined all of the possibilities and adventures that you could share in together with the one that you love?

Have you ever walked up behind the person that you love, wrap your arms around them and tell them that you love them, and have that person tell you they love you, too?

Have you ever made love to your significant other during a thunderstorm, fueling the power of the storm into the passion of your lovemaking?

Have you ever seen the inner strength of the person that you love, and rejoice in knowing that you are a part of that person's life?

Have you ever looked at someone and saw their beauty, both inside and out?

Have you ever felt complete security, just because the person you love is in the same room as you are?

Hae you ever done whatever it takes to be with someone, despite the obstacles, risks and fears of failure?

Have you ever felt like you've known someone for years, even if you've just met?

Have you ever wanted to tell someone that you love them, even if they don't know the way you feel about them?

Have you ever experienced love at first sight?

Have you ever wanted to reach out to someone but didn't know how to do it?

Have you ever met your soul mate?

Have you ever been scared that the person you want to spend the rest of your life with doesn't share your dream or desire?

Have you ever been afraid that you'd lose a person's love and respect because of stupid things you've done (or said) that you can't take back?

Have you ever gotten tongue-tied trying to talk to someone you care deeply about, because you're trying to hide your feelings for that person?

Have you ever vowed that the next time you fell in love, that it would be for the last time?

Have you ever thought about these things and wanted to make them reality?

I will not make the same mistakes I've made in the past.
I will experience these things again.
And this time the results will be different.
Promise.

Wow Green. I read this post, and there are so many yes's that apply to my husband. This is my second marriage, and we've been together 3 years now. I thank GOD for him. He is truly my soul mate. You just made me realize again how very lucky I am.
Your soul mate is out there. patience, she will come your way, when the time is right!

yes Yes YES! I have felt very many of those feelings, if not all of them. But then again, I am totally a "feeling person", so I doubt there is an emotion out there that I haven't already felt ;)

I love the feeling of being in love: I love that security, that euphoria - it's only happened to me once... but WOW what a feeling!

Green, I pray that will be true of me as well.

I have tears in my eyes, Green. This post is beautiful. I spent the better part of the last 5 years engaged in rigorous spiritual austerities, in which there was no need for external companionship. Now, I am ready for an intimate personal connection. I have met the person who I believe is my soul mate, although one can never really know.

~Deb and I became friends because I emailed her asking her how to tell if someone is a dyko (I've been out for a long time, yet I have no female gaydar!). Thus, we forged a friendship that encompasses our faith and sexuality.

Getting back to my soul mate. I have learned SO MUCH about my limited mind, about the stories that I've been telling myself over the years about myself. I am ready to take the plunge and let this woman that I am very attracted to know that I want to spend time with her.

The thought of her makes me smile.
The thought of her sense of humor makes me laugh.
The thought of her beautiful eyes makes me blush.
The thought of her lips makes me swoon.
The thought of her essence fills me with light.
The thought of her touch makes me tremble.
The thought of telling her all of these things makes me feel alive.

Thank you, Green, for this beautiful post.

BTW--even though I called in the troops (~Deb) to help me dicipher whether or not 'K' is a dyko, I still don't know. I'll just have to find out, won't I??? ;)

Scribe- HA!!!! I will say that he will be handsomely rewarded... Did I mention he has to drive for 45 min. to get back here?? Working from home has its benefits.

To all of you who responded so positively to this post, I thank you. I am deeply moved that my thoughts here elicited such a powerful response.

My inspiration for this post was drawn in part from the memories of a love gone bad and the hope for a fulfilling relationship in the future.

Oddly enough, I don't consider myself an overly romantic person...

'Could have fooled me!!! ;)

Bluez~yes I am :)


Green~ You are a born romantic!

 
At 04 January, 2006 18:56, Blogger Bhakti said...

GREEN--because of your post, I decided to go for it!! I made my first attempt to tell this 'special person' that I want to spend time with her. Keep your fingers crossed! ;)

bhakti: Good Luck!

Green: Kudos for writing such an inspiring post!! :)

bluez: do you know something I don't know about my ms. right?
Thanks for the compliment.

Bhakti & dabich: seriously, I'm not that much of a romantic. I have my moments, yes, but for the most part, no. I wouldn't even consider myself a closet romantic. I'll take the compliments though.

bhakti: good luck to you. Everyone deserves to be happy this way.
