Sure, it’s true that sometimes I feel lonely. However, the truth is that in those moments of loneliness, I have a beautiful escape route. It’s you, the apple of my eye.

The thought of you is enough to get me out of any emotional situation. You’ve rescued me from the regular discomforts of everyday life.

It is you that saves me from sentimental agony, you can always comfort my wounded soul. When I feel lonely, I just have to think about you.

The thought of you injects me with life, it spreads joy and fills my heart with happiness. I am content knowing that I’m your everything.

Knowing that I’m the world through which your life revolves fills me with incredible energy. A force is born and it grows with intensity that I never knew existed. It leaves me feeling incredibly brave.

However, I must admit that just as you feel that I mean everything to you, I also feel that you’re my reason to live. You’re the person that can steal the most beautiful smiles, filling me with pride and admiration.

I may sometimes feel lonely, sometimes even battling with absolute loneliness. The secret to facing these feelings that sometimes arise is by thinking of the person who changed my life.

That’s why the best tactic I have is calling on you in my thoughts.

This strategy basically consists of understanding how important I can be in your life.

The yearning you would feel if some day you didn’t have me in your presence. The way in which, without realizing it, I have become your role model.

As your tutor, I guide your direction, trace the path you must follow. However, your upbringing is also about giving you freedom and endowing you with independence and autonomy.

That’s why since you were little, I offered you a map so that you’ll be able to find your own way.

When I feel lonely, I choose to think about all of those beautiful moments that we shared together. Thinking of those bright and sweet moments brings a huge smile to my face.

I review the moments that will remain in my memory forever over and over again.

Your essence is my company even in your absence

Your essence and your aura accompany me at all times. Even in your absence, my mind always keeps you present.

My love for you creates replicas in my imagination even when you’re not around. It is this that keeps me tied to you in my memory at all times.

When a beautiful smile appears on my face, I know that you’re about to appear in my mind. Your soft scent tells me that we’re more alive than ever.

I begin to hear your sweet and tender voice and to listen to your innocent laughter. These are the reasons I strive to get ahead every day.

Thousands of pleasant moments fill my mind. I start to remember how much you’ve grown and evolved.

Each of your achievements and triumphs begin to parade through my brain. My admiration for you increases every day making my heart beat stronger.

That’s where I begin to see myself clearly. My place will always be by your side. We share an unbreakable and unconditional bond through the good times and the bad.

I will always be there to give you my affection, helping you grow to trust in yourself.

I start to understand that perhaps I’m not so alone. You’re my beautiful reason to live my life to the fullest.

The perfect antidote to my sorrow. The little being to whom I am everything, who needs me to continue transiting through this path that we call life.
