I never thought I would be living this life with someone who could really love me as I am.
You appreciate all the things about myself that I find awkward or weird, and you remind me I'm different, but to be different is to be unique. And you tell me how wonderful it is to be different from everyone around me.
You help make me who I am. Make me believe that even when I am lost you will be my star and touch me when I fall. No matter where I am you has shown me that through flaws or imperfections you are there to keep guiding me.
You see all the strengths in me that I forget about. And you never let me fade away from you. And that's more than I could ever ask for.
The fact that you put me first is something I'm learning to get used to. I've never had anyone do that, I have to learn to let you love me. But I can't thank you enough for being the one to hold onto me even when I am not the wonderful person you sought to love.
How wonderful it is to have someone who will wipe away my tears. And see me as I am. How vibrant and lively you are when life seems dull and broken. You hold me when life reminds me it won't always work out in my favor.
I don't always understand how you can love someone who constantly cries, worries, stresses, and tells you off. Yet you still try. You choose to fight me, even though you don't have to. And the fact you make me smile even when I am so broken underneath gives me hope. It gives me guidance to know you love me even when it is hard for me to love myself.
You tell me things will be alright even when you don't know if things ever will. You shaped my heart and made me believe it is possible to love because you allow me to be myself. You love me, and in return, it has changed and shaped me, and I am so blessed by that process. By how you have given me the love I deserve and more.
We are a love and force together and I can't express that enough. I can't tell you how grateful I am because of the way you make me feel. We have so much in common and to share that with someone - to share so much anticipation and passion is really special.
To know your love will always be there is endless. It's so meaningful, so vast.
To know that in our faithfulness to each other you remind me I am able to withstand the world and this life together.
You love me as I am and that is all I could ever ask for. So thank you.
