You. It’s such a complex and meaningful word. And to each individual person it can mean multitudes of things. It varies from person to person and experience to experience.
But when I think of the word you, I am overwhelmed with so much love.
Not long ago I was thoroughly convinced that love was an absolute joke and I had wasted all of my time. I was certain that happiness and contentment were so far out of my reach. And so I settled for the mundane. And then you became a part of my vocabulary.
At first, it was so subtle. I had no idea that you were going to change everything. I wasn’t looking for you at all, but you found me anyways.
The coincidences were too great, and so I began to believe that this was somehow fated to be.
As poured out my soul to you, I realized it was the first time I hadn’t been scared of the truth. Looking into your eyes, I was able to own up to every mistake and stupid decision I made.
But after finding you, I’m not so sure they were mistakes. Every decision I made, no matter how big or small it seemed, lead me to this exact place. And I wholeheartedly believe that I was supposed to find you.
I had spent so many years chasing things that were not meant for me, and only know can I understand why every single one of them fell apart.
My heart is damaged, and a small part of me will always be broken. But you know that, and you choose me anyways.
You look at me as if I am a constellation, and you’ve never seen stars. And though it terrifies me, it also makes me feel whole again.
You value me, even when I don't value myself. You tell me the honest truth, even when I don't want to hear it. And you are constant, in an ever changing world.
You are so much more than what I could have dreamed up. I have struggled so long with finding somewhere to call home and finding somewhere that I belong. I realize now that it’s not a place. It’s you.
This unspoken peace crashes over me every time I look at you, and I know that no matter where I am, I will be coming home to you for the rest of my life.
You are the greatest blessing I have ever received, and I’ve never been so grateful for anything in my whole life.
