When your eyes meet his/hers across a room and a conversation happens, without a word spoken. When one can look into the other’s eyes and somehow understand the depths of joy or frustration, when to press in or give space, and if celebration is needed – or wounds need tending. The love of your life can change your mood with but a glance. Subconsciously, one craves that glance.
Because then comes a hand reaching for yours. Confirming “together” and affirming the journey continues.
