I like the feeling of meeting someone for the first time. The awkward smiles, the friendly chat. And overtime, the distance melts away the tongue-tied caught between your throats and your face lights up when you catch their faces amidst the crowd of strangers.
I like the way your lips curl when you see the name across your phone. How your heart does a baby flop when their name gets casually mentioned in a conversation.
And you’d look back on the day before you got to know them.
And you’d wonder how you lived your life without them.
And you’d go to bed tonight thankful that in a world of billions, your stars aligned.
And at that moment, you know you’re thankful you stayed alive.
For this moment.
How long we have waited.
