When just the mere mention of his name makes my heart melt and beat a little faster.
When that first recognition of my existence made me feel like I could do anything.
When he reaches for me, it’s as though I’m the only person in the world.
When he smiles at me and it is so sweet and tender, it makes me want to cry.

It’s that kind of love.
Sure, I’ve loved before; the comfort of my own bed, a perfectly worn in pair of jeans, a Dave Matthews song I’ve heard a thousand times before that will never lose it’s impact on me, the scent of my grandmother’s perfume that enveloped me every time I entered her house and my best friend, because she’s everything I’m not and can make me laugh like no one else on earth.
But, I’ve never loved or been loved like this before.
He is a part of me and no matter what, he always will be.
