I love you. Not because of the way you look, or what you wear, not because of what you make. I love you because of all things your not. Your not mean, or selfish, not cruel or thoughtless. Your not trying to save me or fix me or tell me how things should be done.
There are so many uncertainties in life. So many things that I just don’t know. The one thing I’m certain of though is that when I wake up next to you every morning, I smile. When I go to bed every night, laying naked, wrapped inside your arms, I feel safe, I feel like I’m home.
Sometimes, in the middle of the day, when the silence inside the house wraps around me like a cloak, I allow my mind to wander and my thoughts find their way back to you. The way your touch gives me goosebumps, the way your kiss send electric shocks down my spine. When your inside me my body feels complete like the piece that was missing has been found.
You make me laugh, the kind where my belly aches and my eyes water and my mouth hurts from the effort. When we spend time together I am often struck by how effortless it is to talk to you. The conversation flows like water from a stream, cool, crisp, and natural.
When I say that I love you, know that it is not words that come merely from my lips but feelings that emanate from my soul. You are a dream come true and I hope that I continue dreaming for the rest of my life.
