I don’t know you. Or maybe I do. Maybe you’re in my college level government class. Maybe you’re in your dorm room on campus right now, thinking about how cute I am (please get your eyes checked). Maybe you went to high school with me. Maybe you’re my best friend. Or maybe, I haven’t met you yet.
I might not know it’s you at first, but when I do stop being so gosh darn stubborn, I’ll realize that you are the piece that I’ve been missing. You’ll change my world drastically, I know that for sure. It’ll be easy to talk to you, from the start. It’ll feel unreal.
I won’t try to impress you (much), so I’ll just be me. Because you’ll like me for me. All the heartbreak before you will be irrelevant.
I’ll give you my whole heart. I’ve given so many pieces of it away and lost them, but I promise I’ve rebuilt it to the best of my ability. You can have it. I’ll make sure you feel safe with me, like the rest of the world can’t touch us.
You can count on me to always be there, that’s for certain.
I may not like to cook, but I’ll cook all your favorite meals. I’ll call your mom just to make sure I’m doing it right. Which reminds me…. I will love your mom so much. So so so much. I don’t have one of my own, so I will love yours like she is my own.
I will always support you, always cheer you on, and always help you whenever I can.
I promise to always laugh at your jokes, even the ones that really aren’t funny. I’ll always try to make you laugh and pull you back in the rain to kiss me even though we’re both getting soaking wet. I promise I’ll sit through your TV shows I hate and will try not to complain. I’ll make you soup when you’re sick and bring you medicine.
I promise the adventures will never stop and we can continue to explore for as long as we live. I’ll never tell you there is a mountain too high for us to climb. I’ll always say yes to road trips and be okay with getting lost because you claimed you knew where you were going. I’ll love you through all the ups and downs, and bumpy roads we will face.
I won’t expect you to be perfect because I know you’re not. I know you’ll screw up, I know you’ll do things that make me want to rip my hair out and I’m positive I’ll do those things to you, too. I know we will fight and struggle through hard times because that’s life. But on top of all the struggles we face I promise I will always face them with you. I promise that I won’t quit on you when things get hard. I promise I’ll still work through things with you and won’t run away from our problems. I’ll face them head on with you by my side because that’s the only way things will get better.
I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I promise I can be worth it because I’ll always give you all the love I have in my heart and love you unconditionally.
