” If you could see your whole life from start to finish, would you change things?”
(Movie: Arrival)

He is the fulfillment of my wishes, even when I dive into the waves and drown myself;
He is my realized dream, in a complete presence of his existence, in an effort to be himself; he is authentic, idealized, he is my utopia.
He is like an unstoppable cycle of infinite multicolored foam balls exploding in the air;
He is a disaster announced, even widening horizons, leaving me immobilized in front of the wonder of life, he brought me life.
He gave me movement, knowledge and description of the lived through continuous lines;
He showed me many paths, a mesh of walking which is made a blessed life.

So, with his impressive blue eyes, he looked at me and simply said:
– Go, my beautiful. Get your feet off the ground and you will reach the sky, touch the stars.
