You

Posted on Sun, Nov 9, 2014 at 4:00 AM

While we were laying together last night I ask you why you bother with me, why you deal with the ups and downs that are a natural part of life and my job, why you rub my back each and every night with very little return rubbing. As a man of few words I expected "because I do" or "because you make good chicken curry" but no... you said "because you're worth it". I might have been stunned at the time or maybe in a sleepy state of shock, but you are right - I am worth it - thank you for realizing that I am not this frantic woman who is trying to save the world. Thank you for not compartmentalizing me, thank you for seeing what is underneath my sarcastic exterior and loving me for me. You are by far the best partner I have ever had and I don't say this because of the back rubs, the wine, the sporadic flowers or the amazing cuddles that you provide (but they certainly help!) - I say this because of the butterflies I feel when I see you, the beat that my heart skips when you pull me in for a kiss and the way that I love to love you. You my darling, are a man among boys. I am thankful everyday to have found you. —Me
