Some people get tired when their significant other says, “I love you” one too many times. For me, it sounds like the first time you have ever said it. Then you ask, “Do you feel it?” I do...I do. Not only do you say it --you show it. Love may be a feeling, but it is also an action. “To love someone” is to “show someone”. Words are meaningless sometimes. You never have to prove to me that you love me. It’s evident. It’s the way you always kiss me when you come home at night. It’s the way you always kiss me before we go to sleep. It’s the way we both get excited for our days off together. It’s the way you take care of me when I’m sick. It’s the way you make me laugh when I’m in a grumpy mood or do something silly just to get a smile out of me. It’s the way you’re so fascinated by my work and look at it as if it’s your first time seeing it. It’s the way you listen to me when I need someone to talk to. It’s the way you truly understand why I’m sad or why I’m feeling frustrated. It’s the way you always try to hold my hand even if I’m stubborn and pull away ‘cause someone ‘might see’. It’s the way you make me feel as if no one else is in a room when we’re together at a restaurant. It’s you.
After sixteen years of knowing you, I am still learning so much about you. I’ll never say, “Oh, I know you already.” That will never slip from my lips. As we grow together, we learn more about one another each and every day. There’s never a dull moment in our conversations. An hour of talking with you feels like only two minutes. How can two people who have been together for sixteen years have so much to say to one another? It’s like living with your best friend and lover all in one. Times where we’ve curled up by the fireplace in the mornings, drinking our coffee and talking for hours at a time, and times spent lying in bed till the wee hours of the night yappin’ away. You entertain me every minute of my life. Thank you.
I don’t think our relationship, our marriage, will ever get old. I want us to grow old together as best friends, as lovers, and as a family. I want to continually learn new things about you. I want to love you deeper & stronger and let you know every single day of your life that someone loves you with all of their heart. No other woman in the world can ever fill your shoes or try to take your place. No other woman can ever hold my eye the way you do. There’s simply nobody better than you.
Thank you for being with me. Thank you for letting me share your life with you. You’ve made me the happiest woman in the world when you married me. You know I’m not fond of Valentine’s Day, because for us, it’s everyday. We don’t need a certain day to show our love.
I loved you yesterday, I love you today, and hell - I’m even going to love you tomorrow.
Happy Valentine’s Day my love.
