Good Morning, Love,
I hope that you could hear my gentle humming. I have been humming your favorite song all night to make sure that you had the best sleep. I know that you’ve been worried about a lot of things lately. Doubting if we really are OK. Wondering where this relationship may take you. How the past affects our future. Questioning if I really love you. I can promise you, that when I say I watch you sleep every night, and can’t wait for you to wake up, I speak the truth. I think about you more than a Mother thinks of her newborn child, and I care for you more than any friend who ever has, or ever will. You are the love of my life. My desire for you is constant. A flame that doesn’t waiver or dim. As I watch you dream I think about the plans you have for the future, and the worry that brings. I see the struggles you face everyday and long to help lift that burden from your shoulders. No matter how many times you say no, I still want to carry your load.
I know that you are strong. I know that you are used to doing things on your own, but I sure wish you would allow me to help. I am strong, capable, ready, willing, steadfast. Even if your struggle required my life, I would lay it down gladly. This is not trite sentimentality. You have won a cherished place in my heart. Your laughter is my favorite sound. Your smile my favorite sight. Your heart the place I feel at home. The quirkiest things about you, that you complain about everyday, are in fact even more reasons that I love you. For each scar, freckle, gap, blemish, and pound, are you. YOU. And you are who I love.
So I am writing you a letter to reiterate again. Today. This moment. This breath. That I love you. That I adore you. That I can’t imagine this world without you. I chose you and I choose you again. And for every doubt or fear you have, I will be here to affirm my love to you, in a 1,000 different ways unique to you. Because I have memorized you and I know what you need. Please never doubt that you are wanted. For my desire for you is deeper than the lowest point in the ocean, and wider than the universe. I called you mine, and will never leave you, nor forsake you.
My love is constant.
My love is true.
I love you forever. I want you for always.
