I Hope You Find Someone…

I hope you find someone, who won’t let you face the darkness alone
I hope you find someone, who listens; to your words and your silence
I hope you find someone, who loves to make you laugh
I hope you find someone, who sees you
I hope you find someone, who wants to know more about you, every day
I hope you find someone, who makes you feel safe even when they are far away
I hope you find someone, who cares about your happiness as much as their own
I hope you find someone, who bends
I hope you find someone, who dreams of holding your hand to the very end 
I hope you find someone who can’t stay mad with you for long
I hope you find someone who would let you go, if they had to
I hope you find someone, who deserves
I hope you find someone, who sees your ‘flaws’ as the very best things about you
I hope you find someone who can’t sleep if they don’t know you’re okay
I hope you find someone who brings their own sunshine
I hope you find someone who forgives
I hope you find someone like this, my friend, but most of all, I hope you find all of the above within yourself first.
It makes it easier you see.
Easier for that person – lover, friend, man, woman, child, whoever – to come into your world. 
Love yourself the way you want to be loved…
the rest just falls into place.

I hope you find someone whoDonna Ashworth
