This is the love you’ve shown me

This year with you has changed me because you’ve shown me love in ways I didn’t know before. You’ve shown me love that makes me understand what real love is, and its an understanding I’ve gained from only you.

You’ve shown me the kind of love that lifts me, the kind of love that makes my worst day better, the kind of love that makes me feel like I can do anything and be anything, the kind of love that fills me with certainty, the kind of love that quiets the voice inside my head telling me I can’t, the kind of love that assures me I can.

You’ve shown me the kind of love that makes me happy, the kind of love that fills my days and nights with genuine laughter, and not just fake giggles and fake smiles, but the good kind of laughter – the kind of deep laughs that make me forget every worry and allow me to be with you in that moment. You’ve shown me the kind of love that propagates happiness when all I’ve ever known is the kind of love that expends it.

You’ve shown me the kind of love that allows for understanding, whether it’s attempting to understand each other, or simply attempting to try new things, things we thought we might have never done by ourselves. We try them for love. We try to understand them for love. Because that’s what your love does – It opens my mind, it shows me acceptance, it makes me brave to try new things.

You’ve shown me the kind of love that used to scare me, the kind of love that I feared losing. But you’ve shown me that there’s nothing to be afraid of. You’ve shown me the kind of love that defies fear, the kind of love that makes your fears seem like stepping stones instead of mountains.

You’ve shown me love in the moments I thought I didn’t deserve; you’ve shown me that I thought wrong – That I do deserve your love, that I deserve all kinds of love.

But most importantly, you’ve shown me that I don’t need to search for a reason. You’ve made me realise that I can be loved, that love is something I’m worthy of. You’ve shown me the kind of love that has instilled a love within myself, a love for myself.

You’ve shown me love that has defied any and every expectation of what I thought love could be. This year with you has changed the way I see love, and I love you for that.
