You, and everything else


I sometimes think back to when we first met and think about how things work out, and how truly silly life is. You were always someone who I felt was so unbelievably unattainable. You were, and still are a man on a mission, this person who's fire was so hot, I thought maybe if I would get to close it might have burnt me. But I am brave you see, I too am made of fire and I walked straight toward you. 

It all happened when I stopped looking. I gave up, I was tired and upset with how poorly I had been treated before you. But then I saw you, and I was so attracted to the light you gave off, and the way it seemed as if every person who knew you, loved everything about you. I needed to get closer, to be near your warmth.

Finding you was like I had never left, the walls in the house were so familiar, the greeting I received upon entering under the doorway was familiar to me. My soul has known you, and when I saw you again, I felt as if I came home after a long journey in search of you, my one true home. 

Now I can't get enough of the warmth of your embrace, the shine and light that fills your eyes, the absolute genuine tenderness that you gather up everyday and give to me. I am blessed beyond what I can string together in mere words, you are the light at the end of the tunnel I had searched for up until now, you are the fog that lightly caresses the window pane, you are the sound you hear when you look up at the stars at night, you are so truly good, and I can't say thank you enough for the gift of your love.
