All of my teenage and adult years I loved you, but I didn’t know exactly who you were. I didn’t know what your face looked like. I didn’t know if we would ever be together. All my life I tried to see you in others, and I gave them the love you deserved. Selling my heart short. All my life you were just a dream, in all reality.
It was then one day, you became a reality. You came along when I stopped searching for you, when I had lost all hope and faith. But, when you came along, you were just as I imagined. Perfect for me, as I was perfect for you, both in our imperfections and flaws.
You came into my life and you shattered the bricks that filled my walls, you taught me that it is okay to be loved for me by someone other than myself. You taught me again how to laugh and how to not be afraid of who I was around others. Something a very special man I called dad taught me but I lost along the way.
You took everything I knew within myself and made it shine and feel more powerful. All of my happiness, all of my love, it was no longer a self happiness, a self love. I was able to give it and receive it.
And from this day forward I hope to give it all back, with every day of All of my life. To be your rock, your laughs, your smiles, your thoughts and part of all of your dreams that turn to reality. My love, my partner, my soulmate, my best friend and my everything, This is for you.
