i remember what my dad

told me once when I was

younger.

he said: “boy, one day, believe

it or not, you will meet a girl

that will overwhelm your heart

with all the love you cannot ask

for enough, and will warm up

your hands when the streets fluff

with snow. when the thunders rumble

above your head, and you thought

you’d be dead, but she'll hug

your arms instead,”

“boy, you will meet a girl an

age older than you, who is more

wise and more fun than the

person you’ll become, and who

will wake up at two AM.

when you mumble your greatest

fears and she will stare at you

softly until you bit down your tears,”

he smiled: “boy, if you never meet that

girl,

then settle down for a boy.”
