I get way too excited about the thought of seeing you again. I have been counting down the hours until it is going to happen. I have been flipping through my closet, trying to find the perfect outfit to wear in front of you. I have been having practice conversations inside of my head so I know exactly the right thing to say when we come face-to-face.
Seeing you has become the highlight of my week. It’s what I look forward to when I wake up in the morning.
I have had trouble focusing on other aspects of my world ever since you have entered it. I try to read, I try to write, I try to get my work for the day done — but I struggle to keep my mind on the task because you keep sneaking into my thoughts. It’s impossible to concentrate when you exist.
It’s even worse when you start texting me. If I know that we are in the middle of a conversation, then I will keep staring back at my phone. I will jump every time I hear the notification sound. I will spend much too long trying to come up with a proper reply. And while I’m waiting for your reply, I will guess how you are going to answer. I will test how well I know you. I will continue our conversation inside my head before it actually happens.
I would drop anything for you. I would lose sleep to talk to you.
I know it’s unhealthy to obsess over a single person, but I cannot help myself. Before I fall asleep at night, I daydream about what it would feel like to press my lips against your skin. When I wake up in the morning, you are the first thought in my head. You are the reason I grab my phone and check to see if I have any missed messages.
You make me excited about living, because any day could be the day that we get to spend more time together. In the morning, I never know what the day is going to bring. Maybe you will flirt with me. Maybe you will compliment me. Maybe you will finally, finally say the words I have been waiting to hear.
I love waking up with so many possibilities floating through my mind. You make me have faith in my future. You make me eager to see what the day is going to hold.
I cannot wait to see you again, because I love the sound of your voice. I love hearing you say my name. I love when you laugh before I even realize what I had said was funny.
I love how you look at me, how you touch me, and how valuable you make me feel on my worst evenings. I love spending time with you. I love knowing you are going to be a part of my day. I am so excited to see you again.
And I hope you are excited to see me, too.
