All The Ways I’ll Show You How I Love You

Tom Pumford

You can never choose how someone will treat you but you can decide on how you will treat the people in your life. And for me, I want to treat you right. I want to treat you the best way possible. I want to love you the way you deserve to be loved.

From the very first time that I talked to you, I already had the feeling that you will be someone so dear to me. And I am truly lucky that I was given the chance to call you mine when all I thought, it could be next to impossible. And from there on, I told myself that I will never waste the chance given to me, to have someone like you in my life.

I knew that at first, you were afraid of trusting other people. I will love you in a way that you will learn to believe in love again and you’ll forget that you were once hurt before. I will never break your trust. I will love you like it’s my very first time to love someone else- with the healthy mix of fear and excitement. I will love you so bad that you’ll start to love yourself even more. I will love you and all of your sides- from the good, the bad and to the deepest and darkest corners of your mind.

I will love you by knowing you more than what my eyes see. I want to know you in a depth that no one ever dared to explore. I want to know the story of your childhood and the story of every scar you have in your body. I want to be able to listen to you when you’re not speaking, to be able to know what your silence or your every glimpse means. I want to see you through your eyes and soul.

I will love you by accepting you as a whole, from your strengths and biggest dreams, your weaknesses, flaws and fears. And rest assured, that I will never use them against you. But instead, I consider them as part of the many reasons why I love you.

I will love you by trusting you. I’ve also been hurt before but I know that you are worthy of my trust. I want to believe you in everything that you say. I want to value the word “promise” when it comes from you. I know for a fact that by trusting, I am giving you the chance to shatter my heart into pieces. But I believe that you’ll never do, even if you can. But I love you so much that I think, even if one day, you’ll break my heart, its fragments will still beat your name.

I will love you by recognizing that I am not here to complete you. Because you, alone, are already enough. But rather, I am here to love you while you build yourself. I will be here to support you until you finally complete and find YOU. And I will be your anchor when you feel like the world is trying to break you again.

I will love you by being your partner in every step of the way. I will always be a sister and a best friend to you. I will love you by telling you what I think is the best for you, even if it means a different opinion from yours. I would do everything for you to be safe and be in the best path. I will never let anything or anyone harm you in any way.

I will love you by letting you grow. I am willing to accept every change that I’ll notice in you, because change is a part of growth. It is inevitable. I am well aware that I cannot be your world, and I won’t ask you to make me be. Us, being in each other’s life is more than enough for me. I know that you have your own world, with different people and opportunities and that I cannot always be physically present in every event of your life.

I will encourage you to ventures which I know you want to take part in. And whenever you start to lose faith in yourself, I will unfailingly remind you that you have the ability to do and accomplish anything. I will not limit you. I will let you roam in this sphere and see the beauty in it and in people. But I hope that for you, it will still be ME at the end of the day.

They say that love is a matter of choice and I will be choosing to love you everyday. I will choose you over any person. I will choose you over any argument and fight that we had. I will not let my pride get in between us. You will always be important for me. You are one of my main priorities.

I will love you by writing about you. Since the day that I fell in love with you, I have not stopped writing about you and how you make me feel. I’ve never been this inspired to write about someone else. You made me fall in love with my first love- and that is writing. You seem to be the endless ink in my life. But not a thousand poems and letters will ever be enough for me to completely express my love for you.

I will love you by talking to God about you. You are always in my prayers. I always thank Him for making our paths meet. I always ask Him to guide you and our relationship, that our love will prevail over any challenge or problem that we may encounter along the way. I meekly tell Him that if He allows, I want to have the privilege to always be a part of your life for me to be able to love you and take care of you for rest of my life. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
