I write you this on August 28th, the day of my birth.
Can one truly love another for the rest of their days? The answer, I do not know. But I shall tell you of what I know, and of what I know is that I truly love you.
You always ask “why” when I say those three words, and here I shall take the time to express to you my deepest affections in regards to you.
I have never felt a greater pleasure within my soul than when you laugh. It is such a strange and wonderful noise that my heart beats to. When you smile, all teeth shown, when your nose crinkles, when your lips curve upwards…I live to make you laugh. I wish to do everything to hear that sound, to know that you are happy. That your joy is a product of my influence.
My heart aches when we are not together. Such a feeling in my chest I do not like. But that pain easily dulls when you lay your head on my chest to listen to my heart beat. I must admit, it must beat faster in your company for it always tries to sync with yours, for what better way to express two individuals as one than with the same heart beat?
Every song reminds me of you. My eyes water and cheeks strain at the smile on my face when we lay in bed listening to music. A gentle rhythm of strings, drums, and lyrics flow through your room as we gaze into each other’s eyes. For truly “I can’t help falling in love with you.”
It is such an other-worldly sensation when our lips meet. Such softness of flesh that presses against one another is too much to put in mere words. Our kisses can be gentle. They can be harsh. Some are sorrowful good-byes while others are ecstatic greetings. They can be quick as a blink or slow as a sunrise. I cherish all that you permit me to have. I can only hope for more.
You have a way of making it all better. You may not be the most social of creatures, preferring 1 or 2 companions at your side, while I flock with crowds of different characters. None know me well enough like you do. You see past what I show, to the inner most me even I do not fully believe exists. You say you see someone beautiful, someone funny, someone smart. All I see is only a fraction of what you say makes up my being. I am forever grateful that you build up my esteem, even when I am constantly tearing it down.
It is true that we have not always been together. We have hurt each other dearly, continuously separating and getting back together. We were young, are young now even still: barely two decades since our birth have we been on this Earth. You question if we can be together forever. If we will have regrets. If we shall have that one fight that truly ends what is us. To that I say, once again, I do not the answer to. The future is uncertain, our past unchangeable, but our love here and now is unconditional.
My Love, I truly and honestly believe that we can make it to forever, if you are willing to walk the journey with me.
I shall always be yours, forever and for always.
