To The One Who Will Forever Have My Heart

To the one who will forever have my heart:

I didn’t know what love was until met you. I didn’t know what love was until being around you all the time made me want more of you when you left.

To the one who will forever have my heart, I promise to be there for you in the toughest of times and the joyous of times.

I will always try to look at you like the first night I came to your house, where you said my eyes had a fire in them…and to keep that fire always. To the day we started our journey not looking for anything more than just to find someone to love and grow with after all the pain we both have been through.

We both have been through hell and back and I just wanted to say thank you for letting me in.

To the one who will forever have my heart, I promise to never hurt you, I promise to always be the backbone you need or the shoulder to lean on. From the moment I met you, I knew you were it for me. From your laugh to your smile, to all that you bring to this world I am forever lucky to have you in my life.

I think being in love with someone is staying grateful and thankful for all they do for you, even if it amounts to just a simple hug and smile after a long day. To appreciate what you have, and to the one who will forever have my heart, I do appreciate you. I appreciate the time I have with you.

We live in a time where it is easy to just give up when things get hard, but I won’t give up on you.

I want to cherish all that we have as each passing day comes. You’re my favorite place to go when my mind needs to search for peace. You’re home to me and you always have been since I laid eyes on you. I will love you forever.
