To Fall In Love

To fall in love is a magical thing.
You never know when it is going to happen or even if it is going to happen.
But there are times that even if it feels right, that it can be wrong.
To fall in love does not happen on a first encounter.
You can feel the rapid heartbeat, the shortness of breath and the wantings of desire.
But that is not being in love.
Being in love is a feeling that comes over time.
It is the whisper of a thought when you are alone and something reminds you of the one you love.
It is a song on the radio that reminds you of this person.
It is the thought of her eyes staring into yours that makes you take a quick breath and hold it until the feeling passes.
It is what I feel when I think of you.
We have known each other for a long time and seen each other in good and bad.
And we do not judge each other on the silly things that we do.
We have laughed at the world and cried together just because we could.
We have touched each other in ways that many lovers never do.
We have suffered.
When all is said and done and the ashes have cleared I do not know what our story will tell.
I just know that right now, right here, my heart belongs to you.
And fight as I may, I can not remove you from my random thoughts of day.
