I didn’t think there was a hand in existence with such a soft touch

or a mouth that spoke only words of compassionate comprehension.

I didn’t know that someone could have eyes that read my soul like a book

or a smile that says ‘I’ll always be with you.’

I didn’t understand that there is a brain filled with hopes and dreams of flying around the world and building a house in the country.

But now I know that there is a heart that beats with passion for saving lives and for weak sweet tea and has the capability of truly loving.
