I Still Can’t Believe I Found You

I still can’t believe I found you, my person. Even before the moment my arms reached yours, I just knew.

After heartbreak and healing, I never knew what I’d expect venturing out into the world of dating again. But I’m here to tell you that after heartbreak and loss comes strength and love. So, if you’re out there searching for your person, don’t give up. They’re out there hidden like needles in a haystack.

It all makes sense now, everything that I went through before you for the universe to lead us to each other. Had I met you a moment sooner, I wouldn’t have been ready for you. I wouldn’t have been ready for this kind of love.

But life had plans for us, and I fell for you hard and I couldn’t stop. I played it cool to not scare you away, but sometimes I let myself slip, and yet you’re still here.

I can’t remember the last time I truly let someone in the way I did with you, so naturally and clearly, letting you see every wound, every scar, every nervous habit and quirk. The way I bite my lip when I get shy and nervous or the way I can tell you everything that’s on my mind just by the way I look at you.

I always had hope I’d meet someone as truly genuine, amazing, and beautiful as you are, I just didn’t know it would happen the way it did and in this order. But it all makes sense now, and my heart feels complete. We complement one another in ways I never expected, and I love learning new things each time we spend together.

I’m not sure how we lucked out with one another, but we did. The universe just knew that we belong together. It’s like something you’d see in a movie, some sort of serendipity, a modern-day fairy tale.

I was just this shy guarded gal that fell head over heels in love with you.
