There’s a point in your life when you know who stays forever, and who’s just around for a while. People change, so do you. Sometimes for the best, and sometimes for the worst. Bad things happen to everyone, you’re not in it alone. People lie, and some people just don’t care how you feel. Your heart beats, no matter how much pain you’re in. Everything will be okay… eventually. There are always people in your life that just make your day, no matter what.
If you ever fall in love… fall in love with someone who wants to know your favorite color and just how you like your coffee. Fall in love with someone who loves the way you laugh and would do absolutely anything to hear it. Fall in love with someone who puts their head on your chest just to hear your heart beat. Fall in love with someone who kisses you in public and is proud to show you off to anyone they know. Fall in love with someone who makes you question why you were afraid to fall in love in the first place. Fall in love with someone who would never ever want to hurt you. Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks you are perfect just the way you are. Fall in love with someone who thinks that you are the ONE they would love to wake up to each day.
The times your absence hurts the most is when I wake up knowing I have dreamed of you, but cannot remember the dream. Like a person groping in the dark for a light switch, I try frantically to reach for some recollection to bring the memory back. I try to recall even the slightest detail… where we were, what happened between us – even a single word you spoke to me; anything to pull the recollection of you back before it fades away completely. But it is always in vain and I am never able to grasp the fragments before they fall away and out of my reach forever. It always feels as though I have been robbed of you… as though you were here in the room with me only moments ago and the memories of it have been stolen from me. Perhaps you were here… perhaps we are together in our dreams and the moment we wake is the moment you leave… And as always, when you leave… you take my dreams with you…..Ranata Suzuki
