I feel as though I have already spent a lifetime waiting for my "Prince Charming" to show up and sweep me off of my feet. I keep this in the back of my mind as I watch all of the girls I have grown up with in happy relationships, already talking about getting married and buying houses with a white picket fence. At times I feel like life is leaving me as I fall behind in my state of singleness and that I am missing out on things that any other normal girl my age is living out. In moments of doubt, I let these thoughts consume my brain to the point that I fear there is a possibility that this person I wait for doesn't even exist. And yet, God continuously reminds me of his promise. The one I have spent my whole life waiting for is out there, and he is well worth the wait. As girls, we are so quick to look past our beliefs and what we truly want in a man to fill the void that comes with a constant worry that maybe our search for our person will never end. We must be reminded of the man we are waiting for, the man who is picked for us individually to hold our hands and help lead us through this life.
I wait for a man that will always put God first before everything.
I search for a man standing in a crowded room and will only be looking at me.
I wait for someone who will be protective over my feelings, knowing that I lead with a heart worth fighting for.
I wait for that person who appreciates the tiny and beautiful things in life.
I wait for a man who loves his Mother because the way he treats his first love is how he will also treat me.
I look for a man who is willing to admit his faults and will love me despite all of mine.
I search for someone that will slow dance with me in public, simply because my favorite song came on.
I look for that person who will hold me through all of the bad days.
I wait for a man that will belly laugh with me over the light-hearted moments that are only meant for the two of us and nobody else.
I am searching for the person that will coin the term, "Home is wherever I'm with you."
I am waiting for my person.
