Don’t Fall In Love With A Body


Don’t fall in love with a body

Bodies change.

Fall in love with a laugh, or a twinkle in the eye.

That way, should those blessings ever wane, you will do your best to bring them back. And we all need someone who wants to bring back our twinkle, someone who lives to make us laugh.

Don’t fall in love with a body.

Bodies change.

Fall in love with a mind.

A person’s mind only gets more interesting as time moves on. And should that mind ever lose its memory, you will do your utmost to be the light that person needs in the darkest hour. You will be their bridge to the past.

Don’t fall in love with a body.

Bodies change.

Fall in love with a heart.

A good heart creates beauty in anyone, anywhere and spreads more goodness in its wake. And should that heart ever break, you will move mountains to put it back together again, piece by piece. 

Don’t fall in love with a body.

Bodies change.


Fall in love with a soul. If you can find a soul you feel connected to, your life will never be without love. And should that soul ever leave this earth, you will still be connected forevermore, in ways we cannot even begin to fathom. A soul never dies, not really.

Don’t fall in love with a body my friend.

Your body was only ever meant to get you where you needed to be.

Fall in love with a friend.
