This Is How I Fell In Love With You

I fell in love with you when I saw the way you rushed to help your friend when he was in need.

I fell in love with you when you got so caught up while talking about your work and I saw how passionate you were about it.

I fell in love with you when I saw the way you sat there listening so attentively and so patiently to your friend as they talked about their bad day.

I fell in love with you when you weren’t ashamed to show me your vulnerability.

I fell in love even harder when I heard you talking about your loved ones.

I fell in love with you when I knew you were tired and hadn’t slept well, yet still came to help me the moment I needed you.

I fell in love with you when you stopped while walking in the street to feed and pet a stray dog.

I fell in love with you when you weren’t afraid of making a fool out of yourself in the pursuit of doing something you love.

I fell in love with that laugh you crack every time you find something funny. I fell in love with how you smile every single time you see me.

I fell in love with you when I saw the way you care about others and how I can feel it in your voice while you talk to them. I fell in love with the way you hold someone’s hand or pat their shoulder when they are telling you something that’s upsetting them.

I love the way you give even when you’re tired and even when you’re weary, yet you’re still there staying strong to give help and support to everyone around you.

You think I loved you for other reasons, but you never got to know that the things you do so normally and so spontaneously every day are what made me fall entirely for you. I loved you while you weren’t noticing. I loved the very little details of you that you may not even be aware of. I loved the tiny things you do that make you the masterpiece you are.
