You know your soul's been touched when..

Wonderfully put by Bob Marley:

"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can
completely turn your world around.

You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they
absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share
hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were
never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When
something wonderful happens, you can't wait to tell them about it,
knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to
cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool
of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you
are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the
things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.

There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet
calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about
what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The
things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or
walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish
forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid
it's like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant.
Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or
didn't exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you
through a long day's work and always brings a smile to your face.

In their presence, there's no need for continuous conversation, but you
find you're quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never
interested you before become fascinating because you know they are
important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this
person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring
them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on
the horizon.

You open your heart knowing that there's a chance it may be broken one
day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you
never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way
to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that's so real it scares you.
You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul
mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different,
exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that
they are a part of your life."

― Bob Marley
