Forgive me for using your words, but none ever made such sense as these. “You and I have fallen from the same branch, drifted apart through winds and seas, and have managed to find one another again.” What were the chances of that?
You still give me butterflies. Thank you for those. You physically affect me every single day, and more still as time goes on. How could I ever tire of the feelings that you give me? And you know what? It’s when you’re not trying that I feel them the most. Those moments when you do some small thing, laugh, or say some word that I think sounds funny, even a ‘hello’ and I melt. Don’t ever underestimate how alive you make me feel in every possible way.
It’s the little things you do that make all the difference in the world. Consistency. It’s asking me how I slept, how my day was, checking to make sure I’m taking care of myself, asking if I’m just generally okay. Going out of your way every day to make sure that I feel loved and cared about no matter what kind of mood I’m in. You know exactly what to say to make me smile or laugh even when I don’t want to. You try so hard every single day and I do notice and I do appreciate it all. I love you and your little things more than you know.
Because I love just talking to you when it’s absolute nonsense and we laugh like idiots over things that shouldn’t even be funny. I just love laughing with you when we’re not just lovers but friends, too. You’re my best friend.
Because, quite simply, it feels as if we’ve known each other forever, even from that first day almost. And there is something magical about that.
Because of heat and melting into puddles, bed spa pool things and sleepovers. You’re so silly and I love that I can be as silly with you.
Because I have learned so much about myself just by knowing you and I am still learning. Your patience, your kindness, your absolute transparency, your genuine, unfaltering and unconditional love are everything to me. You’re my world ♥
