To every soul still searching for their companion,
a sincere dedication:
to your strength,
Maybe you’ve been on this quest longer than you think you can bear;
Or maybe you’re just starting out -
in an early daze,
hoping your Prince or Princess will appear very soon.
Wherever you are on this Journey,
know that success lies not in your hands,
and dreams are not fulfilled according to your schedule.
Frustration, pain and failure may visit you often;
and hope may seem to desert you at times
as your dearly-held dream flutters in and out of your reach,
like an elusive butterfly -
glorious in its delightful beauty,
but fragile and elusive.
But keep holding on,
and never let disapointment break your spirit;
for each misadventure,
each dead end,
each seemingly-wasted effort
is no waste at all.
Everything falls within a Greater Plan,
and though your vision may be temporarily obscured by the present,
trusting that the future holds something much greater for you.
Be true to yourself,
be true to your Creator:
realise that nothing happens unless by His Will.
So each day that passes,
and each night that goes by without you having attained the dream,
consider it a necessity:
the training you require
to mould you into the person you need to be.
Be patient and persevering through everything;
and above all:
use this time to draw closer to your Creator,
and work on yourself;
Become the person you want to be.
Don’t think that your own development must wait until you have someone to grow with.
Tomorrow is promised to no one,
and when you do find that precious soul to accompany you into Eternity,
won’t you feel good
knowing you’re able to start your life together from a stronger personal foundation?
So, to every soul still in this struggle:
and keep the faith.
Dreams come true.
I’m living proof of that.
