We’re not perfect – You and I are far from it but one thing I know is that we’re both worth it.
We were made from the toughest metal; molded by the strongest hands and raised by a God that knows no limits.
I knew you were something else, love, the first time I saw you. I knew but I just couldn’t pinpoint it. But there was something with your strides, the way you carry yourself and look around and know, that you deserve nothing less than the best.
However, that wasn’t the reason why I fell in love with you. Up until now, I don’t have an answer to it but I realized maybe we’re asking the wrong questions.
Maybe the question shouldn’t be “Why did I fall in love with you?” because then, there would be reasoning and I believe love knowsno reasons nor boundaries.
Maybe the question should be:
“How did I fall in love with you?”
I fell in love with you the way I fell in love with words. I started learning how to speak and thought how powerful my words were – they can make and break. I started learning how to write and thought how invincible my letters were – they can overcome countries, continents and sadness without me knowing.
Just like you – I fell in love with you when I first held your hand and realized I am holding the better half of me inside of my palms. I learned that as along as I have your hand with me wherever I go, I will be okay. Your grip was as powerful as my words were for it can drive me insane and calm me down. I fell in love with the way you looked at me and realized invincible was too weak of a word to describe your gaze. I learned at that moment you stared right into me that I was staring at my future and I never wanted to look away again.
I fell in love with you the way I learned how to walk. It was slowly and then all at once. I started from baby steps then I didn’t stop walking again.
Just like you – I fell in love with you slowly, like baby steps and just like baby steps it might be slow but it was fearless. I didn’t care about crashing down, breaking my bones or wounding my knees because all that matters was that I was falling in love with you and before I knew it, I couldn’t stop and I didn’t want to stop ever again.
I fell in love with you the way I have always prayed for – the way I have always been meant to fall in love.
There are no reasons why I am in love with you and refuse to look for a reason why.
We argue, we get on each other’s nerves and at times, tend to forget how much we mean to each other but I am in love with you and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
You know I’m not a good judge of right and wrong but choosing you, every single day – is one of the very few rights that I have made.
I will always choose you.
I will always choose my home.
All I ask is that you don’t get tired of choosing me as well.
