To My Soul Mate

I am so glad that you are a part of my life.  It is a privilege to know you, to share myself with you, and to walk together on the paths that take us in so many beautiful directions.  I had heard of "Soul Mates" before, but I never knew such a person could exist-until I met you.

Somehow, out of all the twists and turns our lives could have taken, and out of all the chances we might have missed, it almost seems like we were given a meant-to-be moment-to meet, to get to know one another, and to set the stage for a special togetherness.

When I am with you, I know that I am in the presence of someone who makes my life more complete than I ever dreamed it could be.  I turn to you for trust, and you give it openly.  I look to you for inspiration, for answers, and for encouragement, and-not only do you never let me down-you lift my spirits up and take my thoughts to places where my troubles seem so much further away and my joys feel like they're going to stay in my life forever.

I hope you'll stay forever, too.  I feel like you're my soul mate.  And I want you too know that my world is reassured by you, my tomorrow need to have you near, so many of my smiles depend on you, and my heart is so thankful that you're here.

Much Love,
Your Soul Mate
