I Don’t Know You But I Want To

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and there is someone for each and every one of us.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and one of them is waiting for you.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and I don’t know you, but I want to.

We haven’t even met yet, and even though I don’t know you, I know that you make this world a more beautiful place. You make the hard days seem easy; the easy days seem peaceful. You make a person who thought they couldn’t love any harder, push themselves to do just that – love harder, with no limitations.

It’s almost like I can feel you wrap your arms around me when the sun shines down, leaving my skin warm, goosebumps running down my spine. It’s as if the sun’s rays are pouring your love down on me, telling me everything is going to be okay.

And I smile. 

I look up into the night sky, the moon brighter than I have ever seen it, and know that we are under the same sky. That when I see the Perseid meteor shower, the shooting stars cascading faster than I can blink, there is a chance you are seeing it too.

And I smile.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and you are following your own path.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and I am following mine.

We haven’t even met yet, and even though I don’t know you, I know that you are worth every moment spent searching for you. Because even though I don’t believe in soul mates anymore, I know that you are still out there. You are wandering this world, and whether you know it or not, our paths will cross one day.

And I smile.

We haven’t even met yet, and even though I don’t know you, I know that you are going to be something special. The people around you already know it, they see your light, and they gravitate towards you. You help them, you seek guidance for them. You change their lives, one at a time, giving off so much passion that I don’t even need to be around you to have to rub off on me.

And I smile.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and you are finding out who you are.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and I am finding out who I am.

We haven’t even met yet, and even though I don’t know you, I know that you are anticipating my arrival.  I know you have loved and been loved, but there will be something different when we come together. I don’t know if it is a familial love, friendship love, or romantic love but I know when it happens, we won’t know what hit us.

And I smile.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and one of them is you.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and one of them is me.

And I smile.

There are 7.6 billion people in this world. 7.6 billion people and I can’t wait to meet you.
