I Love You

Love is patient
Love is kind

It’s so easy to say
Much harder to embody
In a world of loving everything
What does it really mean

I love music
I love glitter
I love candles
I love you

You don’t equate to music and glitter and candles
I just don’t have another way to say I don’t know where I’d be without you.

Love is patient
Love is kind

No matter what, you’re there for me
And I’m there for you
Despite miles and hours and time zones
I feel your heart wrap around me when I’m lost
You’re there in the still silence while I wrestle inwardly
“I know” reaches across the distance
A salve on my wounds
Validating my struggle

You’re my love
And I’m yours

The calm in my storm
The “everything is going to be alright”
We can say everything or nothing
I love to hear all your mundane details
And I know I can share mine
I also know you know what I thinking and feeling even when I say nothing at all

Love is patient
Love is kind

You strengthen my spirit, my resolve, my entire being
Just by being in my life
I say “I love you”
Because what I really feel is ineffable

Who you are
What we have
How I feel about you
Is too great for words

You are more than my other half
You are me and I am you
In a way that compliments all the strengths
And fills in the areas of weakness.

I
Love
You
