A letter to my lover

I always thought I knew what love meant before we found each other, but I really had no idea.

When you first came into my life, I had lost myself. I didn’t know how it felt to be loved and treated with respect. I was so used to being taken advantage of that it was daunting to think that there was somebody out there who could be genuine. But in my soul, I knew that you were the one from the beginning. I trusted you straight away, despite my anxieties of being hurt. I never had to try and be anything apart from my true self with you.

​We are the same person. We laugh at the same things, we share the same morals and values and we are the best of friends. Do you know how special that is? You motivate me to be better and to believe in myself and my abilities. I feel like I can do anything when i’m with you. I know that I don’t have to face anything alone.

Your strength inspires me every single day. The way that you wake up in the morning and push through those hard days is something that I admire. You never give up and you should be so proud of that. I have 100% faith in you.

Our laughter is the thing that keeps me going. Between the heartache and stress of life that we support each other through, we always manage to find time to laugh together. We sing together in the car and go out, dance together and block out the rest of the world. We say and do silly things that other people probably don’t understand and I feel extremely lucky that we have that type of relationship.

You always say that your mind is different to other peoples like it’s a bad thing, but I love your mind. It’s unique and special and beautiful because it’s yours. You never give yourself any credit for all of the amazing things about your soul. You don’t see what I see. You are beautiful from the core. Thank you for changing my life.

I know life hasn’t always been fair to you. And if I could change it, then please know that I would. But as the shit tries to break you down, I am going to be next to you holding everything together. I won’t let you break. I hurt when you hurt, and sometimes it feels like my heart could rip apart when I feel your pain as if it’s my own. But know that i’m with you in this. I’ll be here through thick and thin, loving you the way that you love me. Reminding you that our love is going to pull us through anything.
