A Love Letter

To the Companion of My Soul

It feels like it was just yesterday that I saw you for the first time. Warm brown eyes filled with life and laughter, you carved your way into my heart and haven’t left since. I cannot imagine loving you more than I do at this very moment and yet I know that in the time to come, I will love you even more. I know that I should probably be weighed down by the intensity of the feelings that I have for you, but never have I felt more complete.

I am utterly taken with you and there’s not a thing I wish to do about it.

I know I don’t say it enough. But I’m truly and desperately in love with you.

I love your mind. I love the way you look at me like I’m the only one that matters—like I’m the one who lights up your world. Because you light up mine. Every single day.

I love how you brush my hair away, tucking the errant curls behind my ear, and then kiss the spot just below it. It makes my knees go weak and then some. I love it when you entwine our fingers together, stroking the back of my palm with your thumb, every single touch leaving goosebumps in their wake. I love the way your lips speak to mine, how your fingers sift in my hair when you tilt my head for a better fit and make me forget that anything exists other than us two. I love the feel of your hands on my hips and the bone-crushing hug you subject me to every day, the very second you return home from work. I crave the feel of your rough stubble against my cheek when you murmur sweet nothings into my ear. You make my drabbest clothes feel like the sexiest outfit when you look at me with that glint in your eyes. It fires me up every single time.

I yearn for you with every fiber of my being and I know that nothing short of everything that you have and everything that you are, will ever be enough for me. And I treasure the knowledge that with me, you’ll never, ever hold back.

I love that you bare your soul to me and entrust me with every single fragile piece of your heart, trusting that I will keep it safe as you do mine. I delight in your playfulness. I crave your intensity. I adore how you're not afraid to break down in front of me and that I'm the first person you come to when you're feeling low. You'll always be the only one I run to when I feel like the world's gotten worse. When my heart needs to be comforted, you're always there. When I need a listening ear or just to be held for a while, you know it before the words spill out of my mouth. Nestled securely in your arms is my favorite place to be.

They say love fades after a while. That the spark burns out and the ashes are all we're left with. But we've surpassed that, darling. We made it. Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin. Thank you for making me better than everything I'd hoped to be. Thank you for giving yourself to me without any inhibitions. Thank you for the laughter, the joy, the love, and all the beautiful memories. Thank you for giving me you.
