I don’t know your favorite movie but I know I want to watch it with you on Sunday night, laying on your couch sharing a blanket and a bag of popcorn.
I don’t know your favorite restaurant but I know I want to go there with you, sipping wine and talking about our past, our adventures, our family and our friends. I want us to exchange stories as we exchange looks across the table.
I don’t know your favorite country but I know I want to go there with you, so we can explore its culture and its beauty as we explore the beauty within ourselves and get to know each other as we walk through the crowded streets holding hands and as we tour all the museums getting lost in their art. I want us to discover our art too; the strokes of our own beauty and the marks of our own pain.
I don’t know your best friends but I know I want to meet them and listen to their stories about you and your memories together. I want to see how much they love you and what kind of influence you have on them, I want to know what kind of friend you are and if you will be my best friend too.
I don’t know your favorite book, but I know I want to read it. I want to understand what inspires you, what moves you and the words that touch your beautiful soul. I want to know what stimulates your mind and what captures your heart and I want to read it all and memorize it.
I don’t know if you prefer running or lifting weights but I know I want to run with you wherever you want to go and I know I want to lift some of the weight off your shoulders if you would let me. I want to show you that you don’t have to run or lift alone anymore.
I don’t know how you act when you’re upset; maybe you throw tantrums or maybe you just lock yourself in your room isolating yourself from the world, but I know I want to be there for you when you’re upset, I want to do whatever it takes to make you feel better, I want you to trust me that even if I don’t understand your pain, I’ll try to make it go away or I’ll stay beside you until it goes away.
I don’t know who you loved before and how they loved you but I know it wasn’t right. I know it left you wounded, I know it left you bleeding and I know that I may not be able to stop all the bleeding but I can make you smile again, I can make you believe again and I can show you that love doesn’t have to be so painful or cruel.
I don’t know much about you but I know that I want to spend my time knowing more. I want to spend my days learning about your brilliance and spend my night learning about your darkness.
I don’t know much about you but I know a lot about me; I know when my eyes see something that makes them sparkle and when my heart feels something real. I know when my hands touch something precious and when my soul connects with something heavenly.
I don’t know much about you but I know enough about love and this looks a lot like love or maybe it’s not, but I want to find out. I know enough to know that I want to dig deeper and find the hidden gems in your soul. I know enough to know that somewhere in your depth, I’ll find my treasure.
