I Want Our Love To Reach All The Places, Even The Broken Ones

This is for my future love, whenever that will be, whoever that will be. I want you to know I’ve thought about us, that I’ve dreamed about us, that maybe I’ve even hoped for us, hoped that we’d be big and bright and beautiful.

I want our love to be a love that’s grand, a love that stretches across the surface of the earth and reaches all the little places hidden in darkness.

I want a love that fills, not only me and you, but the rooms around us, whenever we walk in. I want people to see us, yes, but I want them to also see how incredible it can be when you really love each other, when you throw away all those societal expectations and rules and things we’re supposed to do and just fall foolishly for someone.

I want the world to look at us and see love, see faith, see that the world truly is good and people really can commit to one another fully and fearlessly.

I want our love to cover over every past hurt and pain. I want our love to cascade over the rough surfaces of our hearts and coat them with patience and forgiveness and gentleness. I want our love to reach to every person we know, to every city we travel to, to every moment we share together.

And I want our love to reach to every broken piece, and make it whole again.

See, the love I want is a love that fixes, a love that mends, a love that cures. Not because we need one another to be complete, but because our love makes us shine even brighter together than we did on our own.

I want a love that doesn’t just patch up holes, but fills those holes with concrete, something stable and sturdy to stand on. I want a love that makes us better, helps us stand on our own and also rise together.

I want our love to blossom, to grow, to change, to calm, to spark, to shatter expectations.

I want to be something others aspire to, and something that we admire every single day.

I’ve always been told I’m a dreamer, but I won’t stop dreaming about you, about us, about where we’ll be one day. So have faith, Mr. Future Love. One day we’ll find each other, and it will be even better than all those dreams I’ve dreamed. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
