It’s hard to believe we’ve already been together this long.
Our relationship has been as easy as breathing. Through the difficult trials of my life and yours, through the storms caused by old hurts, healed by your hands. Experiencing happiness and stress, euphoria and exhaustion, being alone together, trusting one another. Staying up all hours and forgetting meals to play our favorite game together, lying side by side, or cuddled up on the couch watching our shows and making theories. Knowing with certainty that someone cares about me, knowing you’ll be interested in what I have to say, knowing you’ll listen when I want to talk. Knowing I’m loved.
It’s a powerful thing.
I hope you know how happy I am with you. How much warmer and real my laughter is, my smiles more genuine. Feeling beautiful on the outside to the point where I’ve realized I don’t think makeup is worth the hassle because I already look good enough. Feeling beautiful on the inside enough that I have more faith in my abilities and have come to terms with my flaws. Knowing my flaws and your strengths–and vice-versa–match up well enough that we make the best team.
You are amazing. You are charming and funny, not to mention absolutely beautiful. You are generous and caring, and protective. You make me feel safe and secure when I’m with you. And you have the best smile–I love making you laugh or grin with horrible puns because I get to see it, even if just for a second. You’re thoughtful and kind-hearted, but you know when it’s time to be tough. You mean the world to me and I hope you know how very, very much I love you.
