I just want to tell you a story about this friend or should I say my crush. He sent me a message one night and we talked for almost three hours. And remember, this was the first time we chatted but It felt like I have known him before. He is so sweet and kind. Seeing his name I just smile. If I was a poet I was going to write a poem, sorry I am not one. If I was an author I was going to write a book about him. Maybe I will write about this. I haven't met him but I am glad our path crossed and you will alway be there man.

How I connected or met a stranger.

It was 3 May 2020, 23h18. He said to me I saw you were online and thought we could talk about Corona or anything, that is how he was so bored and not sleepy.

I thought yeah why not. I was supposed to study for the coming exams but I was just not in the mood to study so I opened my Facebook to check what was going. So you know when you don't want to do something you will find excuses or try to be busy with something else. So I chose to browse Facebook, that's when I received a message from him. And before I could respond, I went through his profile trying to find out what he posted and found nothing hilarious or that could turn me off. I realized that we were friends and we did not talk before. I responded and asked him to give me a few minutes to make myself a cup of tea. When I came back I asked him how he was doing. And that is how all started. A charmer indeed.

He kept quiet for few days

He kept quiet for about two days, I didn't know what to do, my pride would not allow me to text him. Or how I miss chatting to him. Finally he sent me the message and I was like a schoolgirl who had fallen in love for the first time. I smiled and responded and my heart was so full of joy. The joy that comes from the heart. Sometimes I wish I could just hear his voice. Now it is more than a week since we have known each other or should I say from the day we started chatting. Should I make that call just to hear his voice. Still my pride would not allow me to call him. I have created this special voice that I pretended to be his voice in my head. I am hoping I will one day hear his voice and not the imaginary voice that I have created in my heart or my mind.

He sends me this Quote by Jim Ronn If you want to do something you will find a way and if you don't, you'll find an excuse. So he used the Corona excuse to be able to message me. But most of all I am glad, we chatted and hope one day our path will cross and we will see each other.

When I miss you, I read our old conversations, smile like an idiot, listen to songs that remind me of you, then I miss you more. Quotes by Anonymous

My smile keeper

He knows what to say and when to say it. I am happy and grateful for knowing him. He always take out the best in me. I never thought one day I will write about love. But this love deserves to be shared with the world. Your soul mate doesn't have to be your lover only, he or she can also be a friend. I have seen one or know one. Just the talk my whole being becomes relaxed. He is a genius also, who doesn't want to have a genius as a friend. My smile keeper, my strength, my bestie.

Thank you

Taoism is known to me because of you and I had to go and research what it meant. I would not have known about it if I did not chat with you. And the quotes you send to me. They are so refreshing and encouraging. I am glad you did send them and I will keep them as memories of you. The songs we shared and the jokes we shared, I am smiling while writing this book because they keep the smile on my face.

I really want to appreciate you and I thank God who sent you my way. I know we might not see each other or get to meet each other. I look the pictures you send to me and my heart jumps with joy. You are really my joy keeper and smile keeper. I just want to let you know that I am very very happy that Imanaged to have that moment with you. The chatting was very encouraging and I believe we will still be friends. My soul friend.People meet their soulmate, but I have met my soul friend. I wish you all the happiness and joy that this life can bring.
