I think we’re all out there searching
for that one singular love story
but what if we’re wrong?
what if it’s a heap of little love moments
with many different people
to make your whole?
`like that time we ordered food but we’re both so nervous we made our waitress nervous too
`like that time you walked me home through the forest under the stars because I wanted to be outside
`or the time we camped on the beach to catch the sunrise, because I’d never stayed awake all night
`or the time you made me a smoothie for breakfast, just because
`or the time we twirled danced around the fire like five year olds and you sung me to sleep in a tent under the stars
`or the time we hung out all day at the beach, as if we’d met years before
`or the time we sat on my living room floor, strangers, sharing wine and giving back massages
I never thought I deserved any of this
these little moments
ever, in my life.
I’ve never really allowed myself to imagine,
and here it is, happening
without me wishing for it to happen
and I don’t think I’ve ever been so grateful
it is a treasure
to have all of these little moments
with people you might not ever see again,
knowing they’re not forever.
maybe they don’t even know what they’ve done for you
the pieces they’ve helped you find,
and I think that is what makes them all the more special
so here I am,
living and experiencing
a heap of little love moments
to make my whole ✨ ~
