Thank You

Thank you for holding me tight, lending me your strength when mine has failed.

Thank you for making me laugh till my stomach hurts and my cheeks begin to ache.

Thank you for hearing me when I’ve needed to shout.

Thank you for holding me when tears have flown till my eyes have run dry.

Thank you for promising me moments, not things, making memories with me that will last for life.

Thank you for the late nights that turned into early mornings filled with conversations and thoughts.

Thank you for kissing me till my lips are numb and electricity runs down my toes.

Thank you for having such a wickedly beautiful and brilliant mind.

Thank you for being secure enough to not judge me, and brave enough to come along with me on the ride.

Most of all though, thank you for coming into my life. For showing me that the unexpected can be amazing and that magic can be found in the every day.

I was so afraid to love again, so afraid of getting hurt. I was terrified of being lied too and cheated on and taken for granted once more. You’ve shown me that my past does not equal my present and the greatest chance I can take is on trusting my heart.

I am not perfect but when I am with you I feel like we are perfect together. I love you, for all that you are and all that you have yet to become.

Thank you for loving me back. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to leap but when I did, I discovered that I could fly.
