I often wonder if you’re ever thinking about me.
Do you wonder what color my eyes are?
If I’m close to my family?
How I take my coffee?
If I drink coffee at all?
I wonder if you spend your days looking, searching, waiting, praying for us to meet.
For me to trust you with all my dreams.
To have someone always on your side to battle your doubts.
To cuddle on the couch with a glass of beer or wine.
Do you get glimpses of our future?
How many kids we have?
If we live in a big house?
City or country?
Writing our love story in your mind.
Proposal story and our wedding day.
Sometimes it’s so much to bare, isn’t it?
This unknown person you promise to spend your life with.
“I love you and I haven’t even met you yet.”
Have you ever thought that?
So much love to give.
Time lines ahead of us.
Loudly at times.
Birthdays coming in like a Warning Sign.
And you feel like your failing.
Sometimes that “happy ending” feels so far away.
Like it’ll never happen.
And in that moment, I hope you feel me right there next to you.
Even if I’m miles and miles away,
or not far at all.
Either way, two souls.
Time will come.
And we’ll one day call each other home.
See you soon, love.
From the Faceless Woman, to the Faceless Man.

Fun Fact: Just as I finished writing this poem, Justin Timberlake’s song “Soulmate” came on my “Magic” titled Spotify playlist. Hmmm? Universe, I see you. 😉
