#59) The One in a Million

There’s a million people out there who’ll never touch you, not even in the slightest, most insignificant way

.

There’s a hundred thousand people out there who will never meet you, even in passing, during the course of any of your few short days

.

There are ten thousand people out there who’ll have a face you’ve seen, but never can remember, and so will forget in time

.

There’s a thousand people out there who’ll see you, speak a word, shake your hand, kiss your cheek, and say goodbye

.

There are a hundred people out there who’ll give you time, be your friend, share your joy, and reduce your sorrow

.

There are ten people out there who’ll fall for you, chase you around, attempt to fight your battles, wipe your tears, and fail miserably to win your love, before disappearing

.

Then there’s that one person out of a faceless million who’ll pop out of nowhere, seize you by the heart, turn your world inside out, and then actually have the audacity to leave you hanging by a thread

.

After shattering your each and every foundation

.

That is the one you must look out for

.

That is the one who’ll become your all

.

That is the one in a million others, who if you’re lucky enough to catch, and smart enough to hold on to

.

Will be the very reason you were born
