Ballad To The One I Haven't Met Yet

Ballad To The One I Haven't Met Yet (Or maybe I have?)

Growing up, I thought it was normal to have an idea of "the perfect boy" and to have a list of the perfect characteristics of that person and a tucked away file in your head of how every perfect moment would play out. So I got a little older, dated some not so perfect people and decided, "You know what? There's no such thing as perfect. You just have to learn to deal." So then I dated some more not so perfect people and was totally OK with it for a while because I didn't want to over-react.
I've recently revisited the idea of having a list -- As correct as I was about there not being a perfect someone out there, I was missing the fact that there is, however, a certain way I deserve to be treated and a certain amount of "deal breakers" that I simply cannot look past.
So here's to you, kid; whoever you are:
I will spend a lifetime getting to know the ins and outs of you, but I do know that you love me for me and never want to change a hair on my head. You share my passion of traveling and meeting new people because you are so open-minded and we feed off of each others good karma. We make a good team because neither of us like to make plans -- The only plan we need is happiness and the definition of that will change as we grow older and wiser together. Our strengths and weaknesses compliment each other in such a unique way that it will be considered an art form in our eyes. We don't need a home because the only home we need is simply wherever we are together. We practice patience and appreciation for what the world puts forth naturally and give it back like it's our job. We fill each others sorrows with our words because we know that our spirits are strong. We never fear death because each day is to be lived to the fullest extent possible and we never forget to explore both our surroundings and our minds.
 Until then, keep on as you have been and I'll do the same. I expect that I'll have some sort of feeling when I meet you that will match the same feeling you're having. I know that life isn't a Disney movie but there is some magic in all of us, right? For all I know I see you every day and I'm just not ready to accept it yet.

So see ya around I guess?
