The Love Omen

I grew up thinking I’d never fall in love. Or rather, no one can ever fall in love with me.

Well, I was wrong.

I never knew when love happened to me. I still have to pinch myself to believe it. But it’s true. Love is not an illusion. It’s real, so real. I can feel it all around me. Its in the wind, in the sun, in the clouds, on the ground I walk on, in the birds flying across the sky, in the laughter of a child, in the waves that hit the shore… its everywhere.

It’s amazing how complete you feel in the circle of someone’s arms. When you feel your hearts beating as one, in the same rhythm. When you look into their eyes, you know you want to gaze into them forever. You feel safe and protected, when you rest your head on their chest. When they hold your hand and promise you their love, you know it’s for real.

Love can do so much to a person. Can change the way they think. An atheist may start believing in the existence of God. Love can penetrate so deep that even the strongest people break down and cry. Nothing can match the passion you feel for each other, and all that matters is being together. No wonder they say love’s blind. But the sights a person ‘blinded’ by love can see, can never be felt by an ordinary person.

Its tough to stay in love. I know. But this is the most beautiful feeling I have ever experienced. I can’t bear the thought of losing the one I love, but spending my life with him seems like a distant dream. And now, I never want to wake up…
