I hope one day you get to love someone like you love breathing air or drinking water. Like they are fundamental to your existence, needed and necessary.

I hope you get to love like gravity loves, like the sun loves the earth.

Like warm sunlight upon soil that makes plants grow.

I hope one day you get to love like that.

I know I have.

I will never stop and never settle but will settle down with the one who’ll let me draw paintings on their skin with the tips of my fingers.

I will never stop and never settle but will settle down with the one who knows that some people are terrified of what may happen, and what may not.

I will never stop and never settle but will settle down with the one who makes me want to be better.

I will never stop, and never settle for less. Neither should you.

Though the waves might bring you down and though the currents might pull you under, the sky is still right above you. The sea may bring beauty and hope, but the sky brings the sun that kisses your blessed skin, and the moon that pulls the tides.
