Right now, there are people all over the world who are just like you.

They’re lonely. They’re missing somebody. They’re in love with someone

They probably shouldn’t be in love with.

They have secrets you wouldn’t believe.

They wish, dream, hope, and they look out the window

Whenever they’re in the car or on a bus or a train and

They watch the people on the streets and wonder what they’ve been through.

They wonder if there are people out there like them.

They’re like you and you could tell them everything and they would understand.

You’re never alone.

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul

And makes us reach for more,

That plants a fire in our hearts and

Brings peace to our minds.

– Unknown
