inside rumbi


we were eating salads at rumbi.
you looked at me and said something like,
"you know... it's kind of strange thinking about how you are the one i've been praying for and thinking about for such a long time now. you're her... you're here."

i think my heart melted and spilled out onto the floor.
right then and there.
inside rumbi.

all i could do was stare at you and smile so i wouldn't start crying
right then and there.
inside rumbi.

but i was thinking,
"me too. me too, lincoln. you are him. the one i've been hoping for all my life....

and i love you so much."

i love these little snippets you write. i feel like i'm getting a little peek into your life (in a non-creepy- stalker kind of way) and getting to experience all these little moments of falling in love right along with you.
