My darling, sweet Prince--where do I begin?
As always, I want to start by saying, "thank you." I tell you a million times a day, each day, that I love you and that you mean the world to me. Although you reciprocate some of these feelings, I'm sure you have no inkling of the strength of my love. My love for you is strong!
You walked into my life a stranger a mere eight months ago, and my life hasn't been the same since. You are TRULY my gift from a higher power. "Love" is such a small word for what we share. You are amazing. You came into my life when I was at a low point: a time when I thought that the pain brought on by someone else would never end. During the moments I tried to turn away for fear of the unknown, you dug your heels into the ground and looked deep into my soul and stayed. You compromised your life and your goals to help me survive, and I owe much to you. Without you I could not even go on.
You have become a beacon to me. Whenever I feel as though I've drifted too far into the discouragement that clouds my life, I can look up to find you guiding me to safety. I stay here, not because this place is home, but because YOU are home.
After all that's happened to me in the past three years, I swore that I could never settle down again--that I could never give my heart and life completely to someone again. With great content and zero disparity, I take it all back.
Most people will spend their entire lives searching for a perfection that almost never exists. Most people will spend their days looking at each person they encounter with questions as to whether or not they have found a reason, a season, or a lifetime. With you I have found an eternity. This is where I was meant to be. You are what my entire life has led up to. You are my very best friend, my lover, my protector, my teacher, and my one and only soul mate.
I give my life to you--mind, body, and soul. I want you to hold me for the rest of my life as you do now, each and every night.
I belong to you from this moment on.
