You were in my dream last night. That's all I can tell you.
Make her laugh.
Whenever she seems distant, sing, ‘You Were Meant for Me’ from Singin’ In The Rain. Afterwards, offer to buy her a cup of coffee down the road.
She prefers to walk in the sun but always complains about it being too hot out. On the way she’ll make jokes she can’t tell with a straight face and ask questions about all the small things the rest of the world forgot to wonder about.
She likes long showers, and has a panic attack at the thought of having to order at a drive-through. Don’t let her shyness fool you though, she will re-enact movie scenes, dance in the supermarket, sing at the top of her lungs after midnight, and do a one woman show, just for you.
There will be times when you’ll feel lost though. I know you want to understand everything about her and figure out why she acts a certain way. Don’t over-analyze her. I know you will, but try to take it easy on her.
She has a capacity to love that will sweep the dust off your old bitter heart. And whether it’s an injured banana slug, or a dog who needs a home,
Notice how her eyes shine brighter than love. lain S. Thomas
