4 years later.
My heart beat triples in speed, pounding stronger, louder, and faster every time I lay my eyes on you. You make my heart beat so fast, when I don't want it to beat at all. You make the world keep turning and the sun keep rising for me. The days I don't want to even climb out of the bed, you make me feel like there is always something to wake up for. Going to sleep is the worst part of the day for me because it means my brain shuts down for a while and I can talk to you. My favorite part of the day now though is when I get to wake up and see your face, eyelids droopy and fluttering from sleep. I love waking up and hearing your voice, raspy and gruff from not being used. My favorite part is when your hug me from behind when I'm still asleep and whisper in my ear "good morning sweetheart" and then you kiss my forehead. My mom asked me tonight why I was in love with you, she wanted to know If I could pin point reasons. I told her I didn't have a reason, I said that our love, just was. There was never one thing that made me fall in love with you, I knew I loved you from the moment you held my hand on our first date, from the moment I saw you leaning against the movie theater beam outside. I told her there was no way I could explain why I love you, other than we were meant to love one another. She just smiled and told me that my answer was the best way to feel and that's how you know your in love. I have to agree, I think that's how love should be, you love them so much that there is nothing, no words strong enough to describe what you feel for them. You just know you were meant to be in each others lives. You make me fall more in love with you everyday, the little things you do and the big things, make me so proud. Those things you do are the little reasons I love you, but mostly I just love you for "you". The entirety of you, your heart, and soul and mind and body. All of it, I love you because you never pretend to be something you aren't, you are you, and I love you for all that you are.
