Romance

May 31, 2005

Someone called me a romantic.

I think everyone is.

If you love someone or are with someone, then naturally you wan’t to make them happy, and you do things that some might consider romantic, crazy, affectionate, or kind and awesome. Everyone likes surprises, and seeing that person you care for happy and surprised is a wonderful thing. Knowing that you can tell them how you care in so many different ways is wonderful and fun as well.

But what if it becomes just one person doing all the work? What a silly thing to say, You can’t NOT do romantic things when your in love. It’s accidental half of the time. You just need to tell them how you feel, because you do. If you tell them they have the prettiest eyes you have ever seen thats because its true. If you look at them and find your breath is hard to catch, then why not simply say so? Sometimes you need to hold them and tell them how wonderful they are. Or hold them up and spin about so that everything else spins, and you remain still. So that the world spins around you. Or sit on a rock and watch the stars while talking about your dreams.

Everything from falling asleep on a couch in the person you love’s arms, to getting a romantic well thought out surprise is romantic.

The sky is pretty.

Life is often a whirlwind. You get caught up in it so easily. It can lift you up and make your spirits soar, or it can toss you away. You can grab hold of something and try to resist it, but it just pulls you anyways, sooner or later you lose your grip and it sweeps you wherever it wants. You can’t control it. You can’t harnass it. Just your choices of what to do when it comes for you.

Lose sight of what anchors you to your hopes and your dreams and you may lose sight of those dreams forever. How many times have I loosened my hold and grip on my dreams to only see them dissapear. Then you have to struggle your way back, or hope that the whirlwind will send you back.

Unless. Unless you become the whirlwind. Bring those hopes and dreams with you. Let yourself spin, soar and climb with your dreams in your heart.

You don’t need to be a hero to take hold of your dreams. You don’t need to be strong to make them come true. You don’t need to change the world. You don’t need to give up. You don’t need to change yourself. You don’t need to be the best. You don’t need to control. You don’t need to. You don’t need to. You don’t need to.

All you have to do is remember whats important, protect it, fight for it, and hold whats important close to your heart. Love it. Love it limitlessly.
