Love Letters #2


For you,
I have waited
I have prayed
I have searched within the wrong people hoping to find
Today,
I have you
I have your love
I have your tender affection
I have your unwavering support
I have a hard time coming to terms with the reality of you
I have everything I’ve always wanted and,
I have a smile I thought I would never find
Because, you, my darling, are everything I’ve always yearned for.

All my life, love hurt
So, I began to measure love with pain
The more it hurt, the more certain I was it was real
Then you walked in
Calm, free of pain, offering love
I couldn’t understand how that was possible
In the spirit of trying new things, I let you in
I let you teach me what love really was
With every lesson,
I wonder how I lived without it for so long

Can’t help but feel we could have a little more,
We haven’t explored everything that’s in the cards for us,
Ours hearts haven’t really felt to their capacity,
We still have walls to knock down,
The little stones are still unturned ,
Our love hasn’t been completely defined.
