My life was just something that I trudged through;
It didn't hold much meaning to me as I grew older.
I would go through the phases of an everyday journey.
A journey where emotions were not commonly used.
Then, you entered into my life on that fateful day not so long ago.
Your appearance brought forth a new realization from within;
Life was suddenly more than just a meaningless word.
Everytime we talk, you leave me with wanting more and more.
Any excuse I could find would be used to talk to you again.
Smiles and laughter were slowly becoming less foreign to me.
Though you may be hundreds of miles away from me,
I know that within the year, we will be reaquainted with one another.
When that day is upon us, there will be nothing to stop my ever-growing smile.
Until that day though, I'll be satisfied to hear from you on the phone.
You have given me a reason to wake up and smile. Thank you.
