Fight for me: because when I think of you, I think how I’d do anything to make you happy—how I would go on all the walks or buy you all the Doritos in the grocery store that you wanted. Because you walking into my life was so unexpected, but has turned out to be incredible.
Fight for me: because every time we see each other, it’s a new experience. Because we get to travel and explore new places together. Because we sat behind a waterfall in a little cove, just us, as we observed the view before us, the falling water making the rest of the world blurred. Because in that moment, even the wet, slippery kisses were good ones. Because we built a fort together, and just when I thought it wouldn’t work, when I gave up on it, you didn’t. Because we sat in the fort, binge watched New Girl, and drank wine until we fell asleep. Because you are the only person I have ever been able to fall fast asleep with while snuggling all night.
Fight for me: because we learn from each other. Because you taught me to love red wine and actually buy music I enjoy. Because we showed each other our passions—for our careers and hobbies. Because we inspire each other to be better. Because I learned to open up and allow myself to be vulnerable, and you, to use me as support when you’re feeling low. Because we’re perfectly imperfect, and have come to accept all our flaws. Because the more time we spend together, the closer we become.
Fight for me: because when we argue hard, we make up harder. Because when you made me cry, I knew you didn’t mean to hurt me. Because when my stubbornness got the best of me, you accepted my apology. And because after, comes the cuddling and the kisses. Because if anyone else ever heard our baby voices when we spoke to each other, they’d vomit.
Fight for me: because the distance is worth it. Because with each goodbye comes more pain, but with each hello comes more joy. Because all the money we spend doesn’t matter in the end. Because we’re together. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Fight for me: because when you kiss me, I feel it throughout my entire body. Because every time you run your fingers through my hair or grab my face with both of your hands, I melt. Because I want to keep kissing you for as long as I can. Because with every kiss, my feelings for you grow stronger.
Fight for me: because we can be our complete selves when we’re with each other. Because we can wrestle with each other in my living room and practice trust falls. Because your smelly fart made me laugh and cringe at the same time. Because I snorted when I laughed once, and you ignored it. Because I can run around crazily like a dog looking for his bone and you’d smile. Because you can speak in any horrible accent you want, and I’d roll my eyes. I’m not worried that my weirdness will scare you away. Because I know despite it all, you like me anyway.
Fight for me: because of the firsts. Because they mean more to me than you’ll ever know. Because everything has been new for both of us. Because we listen and are patient with each other. Because any roadblock that arises, we can figure out as a team.
Fight for me: because I’m still here. Because through all your concerns and doubts, I stuck around. Because I know you’re worth it.
Fight for me: because I believe in you. I believe in your hopes, dreams, and fears. Because I’ll always support you. Because you’re more than you think.
I want you to fight for me. But sometimes, I feel like I have to tiptoe around you: like I can’t say something for fear of you running away.
Fight for me: because it shouldn’t be like that. Because soon it’s going to get to the point where there’s nothing I can say to make up your mind. Because you know I want you in my life. Because it’s okay to be scared, but one day you’re going to have to stop second guessing everything and do what your heart tells you. But if you decide in the future this isn’t what you want, you’re going to lose me. Because I’m not going to wait around for you to change your mind. Because once you let me go, I’m gone for good. Don’t say it’s not the right time, that maybe down the line we’ll meet up again and be right for each other.
Fight for me: because we’re right for each other now. Because there will never be a perfect time. Because if you wait for one, you’ll be waiting for the rest of your life.
So, fight for me. Ignore your head, your hesitations, your fears, and take a risk. Take a risk because what could become of it may end up being the best thing you’ve ever had. You won’t know if you back out & never try.
Fight for me.
