I knew it when I looked into your eyes the other day. That sparkle – it was like looking into a planetarium of every star in the universe. It was a glistening I haven’t seen in a very long time, one I was almost afraid was gone. But in that moment, I knew I loved you – and you loved me right back.
And when I heard you singing in the shower, I knew it was like a dream that had come true. A reality so magical that I thought it only existed in the movies. I never thought I’d really be able to live it in real life, but there you were, so cheery and content that you felt comfortable enough to hum your favorite love song. And again, in that moment, I knew I loved you – and you loved me right back.
Nights full of panicked conversation were now filled with sweet cuddles and the whispers of possibilities. While the sunset was once a dreaded reminder of another day wasted, it was now the start of a sweet routine – a time to take care of us and to make the most of the moments we have before time gave us others to worry about. And in those tender moments, I knew I loved you – and you loved me right back.
When the thoughts in my head started turning sour, and I was worried this might be the end, you were right there fighting for me. You kept reminding me that we were always worth it – no matter what my darkest demons tried to tell me. It was those fighting words that pulled me through. And in those moments, I knew I loved you – and you loved me right back.
I know I can be a handful. I know that there are hellish days and sleepless nights, but I will always be forever grateful that you’re there, fighting for me tooth and nail. I am in awe of your strength and compassion and resilience. The way you face your demons head on and fight until you win. I know, even in my darkest hours, that you will continue to fight for me – for us. It is in those moments – and every moment in between – that I know I love you because I am you. And I won’t give up. Ever.
