My love, you are my everything and you are my always, you have my heart and you have my soul. In my darkest days and my brightest hours, you are the one I look to for comfort and clarity.
I love the way you talk about the things you love, I love the way you laugh at your memories when you’re recounting them. I love the way you wrap your arms around me when you’re sleeping and I love how patient you are with me.
I adore the little things you do, like when you bring home flowers and keepsakes just because. When I catch you looking at me with a smile. How you wipe away my tears and bring me hot water bottles when I’m feeling sick. You are the reason I am who I am, and the reason I learned that it’s okay to be me.
But there are things that I’m afraid of, my love. I’m scared that I’ll lose you, that one day you’ll wake up and not feel the same as you do today. I’m afraid that you’ll stop loving me, even though I know I’ll never stop loving you.
My love, I need you to know how much you mean to me. You’ve pulled me through my worst hours and you’ve brightened up my most favourite days.
There is one last thing, my love, I need to thank you, for without you I wouldn’t be here today.
