You see me with your eyes. You truly, undeniably, see me into my core. My soul has for once felt noticed, adored, and appreciated due to your eyes.
They all said it would happen at a time when I least expected it. I have to say that I didn’t see you coming; you actually came out of nowhere, if nowhere was Heaven. These past few weeks of knowing you has taught me how worthy I am. You love me with those endearing eyes. Those eyes unravel every piece of who I am and I’ve never felt so complete while the pieces of myself ravel onto the floor.
Weeks. Just weeks.
Weeks are all it took for me to feel what I believe people search lifetimes for. Up until the day before I knew you I was one of those explorers. With you, I feel as though I am the most traveled. I have seen what a selfless love looks like from watching the way your eyes meet mine. Your eyes study my face as though I am a piece of art to be appreciated and taken in for exactly what it is.
I want everyone to feel what I feel when you look at me.
I see the best version of myself when I look at you. I see my future. I see looking at you in the car after our wedding night ends and our life begins, grabbing your face to kiss you, knowing how sweet that moment will be. I see jumping into your arms after we see a little check mark that indicates we’ll have something that is an equal mixture of you and me. I see sleeping in on Sundays, watching how the sun runs across your face and feeling in awe I get to have you as a partner. I see taking drives where my hand can’t find itself away from being intertwined in yours, listening to the melody that created us, and exchanging soft smiles.
I see a lifetime that brings tears to my eyes because of how loved I am going to be. How worthy I am going to feel.
My darling, my lovely and precious soul, I promise to never take you for granted. I promise to love you with my eyes as you love me with yours. I see my whole world when I look at you. I see what the people mean when they say you’ll just know. From the first conversation we had it was an instant feeling of affirmation. You are it and to be honest, you always have been.
Love can be a lot of things. Love can be messy, unpredictable, heart wrenching, and too good to be true. Although, with you, I have learned that love can just be a good thing. I am going to spend the rest of my waking days to give back to you the love that you have given to me.
Those eyes, your beautiful and endearing eyes, thank you for loving me with them. Thank you for choosing me for I promise to choose you every day.
