There’s So Much More To Life Than Loving You

Like the friends who love you unconditionally
and would do anything to see you smile.
Like the way they hug you when you’re down
and how they love the messy parts of you.

Like the beauty of the stars at night
and how they make you believe again.
Like the ocean that welcomes everyone
and how it heals your deepest wounds.

Like your dreams and your ambitions
and the way you work so hard to achieve them,
how they made you believe in yourself again
and how they gave you a glimpse of magic.

Like art and how it soothes you,
how it perfectly describes how you’re feeling,
how it makes sense of your pain
and how it has the power to save you.

Like someone you randomly met
who showed how special you really are,
who accepted you with all your flaws,
and healed your broken heart.

Someone who taught you that some people leave
so better people can arrive
and someone who proved to you
that there’s so much more to life
than someone who didn’t know how to love you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
