Our love was never the roller coaster kind
It was not a whirlwind romance filled with spontaneity and drama.
Ours was calm like the seas when the sun is shining brightly or when the birds are calmly singing in their trees.
I met you, we fell in love, and the only problem we had was trying to hide and not get caught by my Dad.
During the first few years we were together it was as if the birds in my stomach were let loose. The butterflies flutter as if wanting to escape. Now, like most true long-term lovers do, the old feeling I used to feel is nowhere to be felt or seen..It has grown stronger and probably more true. What I feel is happiness and contentment.
Being with you is like knowing my dad will pick me up during a dark stormy night. Or swimming by the sea. Having you near me completes – me. And explaining what I feel will take me a thousand words. It’s like painting, or doing something you are so passionate about like singing a great melody on stage. The puzzle just fits so easily. It’s like driving past a green scenery – You never really know how to explain the happiness you feel.
I will never know how to explain the happiness I feel. Not the kind that excites you or makes you grin widely, but the kind of happiness that makes you want to just stay silent and enjoy the moment.
When i’ve realized the great blessing of having you in my life, I asked myself what the hell was I waiting for? Why else would I want to wait? At first I felt scared but the good kind. The exciting kind. The kind that tells you to jump, the wonderful ocean is waiting beneath you!
I do not believe in a perfect man.
People ask if we fight. Of course we do. But we fight well. And we are both trying hard to become better at it.
We dream and at the end of the day we remind each other that we can lose everything we’ve built so far (cars, houses, businesses) as long as we don’t lose each other. We’ll always be able to get back on track.
Life, at the end of the day, becomes you. And being with you makes life.
