When I met you, my life truly began. Before you, my life had no direction or purpose. I walked through life, blind to the world around me. Deaf, I could not hear what my heart was saying. Disastrous past relationships left me cold and alone. I had given up, thinking love just wasn’t something I could ever have. When my world was at its darkest, love blessed me with you.
You taught me more than school ever could. You opened my eyes to so many different things. Most things I never noticed before. Like how hard it is to breathe when you are by my side. Like how my heart races at just the thought of seeing you. Like how my every thought revolves around the universe of you.
Ours is a love above all others. Nothing in my life could ever, or will ever, compare to what we have found in each other. I trust you with my very breath. As strange as it may seem, I could not see my future before I met you. Now it is crystal clear. It’s not a future without struggle. For how else will we learn forgiveness and compassion? But it is a future full of possibilities, all because you love me. Whatever bumps we might hit along the way, I have faith that we will work through them. You give me the strength to become a better person. For you, I could do that. For you, I will do that.
You asked me once if I love you. I told you that I did. But now that I think about it, that wasn’t the right answer. I should have said this: My love for you goes beyond this life and the next. It is deeper than the deepest canyon or ocean. I will love you longer than time itself. I love you more than any heart can hold. That is why I gave you mine.
Thank you for choosing me to share your life, your love, and your future. Thank you for trusting me with your heart. With you in my life, I need nothing else. No other can give me what you already have. I love you with every cell in my body, every breath that I take, and for every day of my life.
(Insert name here)
Others may have hurt you
It’s the price we pay
It doesn’t mean that everyone
Will treat you like they did.
I know your shattered heart
Is lying at your feet
Your trust in love is gone
But like the saying goes
It’s always darkest before the dawn
I know that you aren’t ready now
But I think you should know
I can take the pain away
I can give you what you need.
I have been where you are now
I know the pain you feel
That is why I won’t rush you
That’s why I’ll wait right here
When you are ready to take the chance
