to the one i married

yesterday i was feeling so broken.  until you came home.  and you listened to everything i was saying.  i mean really listened.  and you even heard the things i didn't have the words to say.  and you calmed me.  and loved me.  and told me i wasn't broken.  it is true that my life has been a crapstorm of events but the moment i met you it was like it all made sense.  everything led me right into your arms.  and since then i feel like i've grown into myself.  like i've learned how to be happy again.

last night i wanted to tell you that you're the reason my life makes any sense.  but you'd just fallen asleep.  so i whispered it hoping you'd hear it echo in your dreams somewhere.  you are the only one for me.

and this morning when you filled the house with silliness and fun...i just wanted to freeze time.  stop everything outside of our house from happening and just be with you in those moments and have them last all day.  i wanted to run around the house and throw my arms around you over and over again.  it was bliss amidst everything else that's going on.

that is what you have always been.  my shining light in the dark.  my silver lining.  my truest and only.  my favorite and best.

lately i've been thinking about watching our feet dangle over the ocean.  howeverhighup we were.  the more time that passes the more romantic it gets.  the two of us parasailing in the rain.  our feet against the deepest turquoise below.  sometimes i love you just doesn't suffice.

but i so love you.

yours always,
the one you married

I feel as though i'm not privileged enough to be reading this....let alone commenting on it.

It's an amazing gift to find the one who makes you want to write sonnets, scream from rooftops and jump from the highest ledges....all in the name of love....

I love that you love....and are loved.

it gives me hope.
