As I sit here next to you, I feel at home. Something I have not felt for some time and I am ecstatic to have returned. I had felt at home near you before many times, but it was never like this before. This time feels more real. This time feels more permanent. This time feels like the final time. That once happening that creates a family. That instinct of paternal drive to provide for my loved ones. You have inspired this and I will carry it not as a weight, but as a blessing.
We have talked and planned and there are many things yet to discuss. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on our future. Our children. Our lives, shared as one. One life. One love. One path. We walk together now, hand in hand. A walk in the golden woods, shining leaves overhead shade us from the rain that might fall and the sun peeks through them, giving us that shining light that leads us onward. You look beautiful in any light, but this new light that I have seen you in fits you better than any so far. Your face glows when I look at you and when you smile, my eyes light back in response to your twinkle. Like starlight, you amaze and captivate me. You draw me in, like a silver moth, to your burning flame for me.
I don't have to tell you, but I love you. You know this as well as I know that you love me. Yet, I can't help but tell you again and again. I am a broken record, stuck at the sweetest part of the song. My chords, struck by the weight lifted from my heart the day I saw your face again after what felt like eternity and beyond. I died a little that day. I must have. I was drawn closer to heaven at the least. Struck down by your radiance and lifted back to the heights of passion again and again by you.
I know each day that my love for you will continue and grow stronger. I know that we share in each others joy and reflect light to and from each other until that awesome light blinds us both and bathes us in its rapture. Each moment to come will only increase this. Only make it stronger, more passionate, more consuming... With each passing second, I burn hotter for you. The flame is never too hot for me to bear. My flesh has been delightfully charred in your heat and I continue to burn eternally for you.
Tonight, I will rest my head next to you and will dream the visions of you that only I can have. Those dreams that you will bring to life upon the next sunrise. Those dreams that you have fulfilled each and every day since first we met, first we spoke, since before we even met. I have known my love for you since long before. Since the dawn of time, I just did not know of the meaning behind it until I first kissed your lips. Like an unknowing mortal, struck by the rapture of the fates. Awakenings like this are brought upon only by perfect moments, and our first kiss was indeed that. I still hear that waterfall every time we kiss. I let it wash over me, like I wash over you with each not-so-tender bite. Every kiss another frozen moment in time. You will be my life and time will stand still for us, I promise. Now I know how to stave off time, by letting you lips embrace mine. Time will stand still for each of those moments. Kiss me, my love and let's watch time pass us by.
