An Open Letter to the Boy I Like

The second I laid eyes on you, I knew that you were going to change my life. Whether I met you for a season or for a lifetime, I will always recognize that it was for a reason.

I'm so incredibly lucky that the universe brought us together… I can't even wrap my head around it. 

You make me want to be the best version of myself. Focusing on the positive is an easy task ever since I've met you. After all, how bad can the world really be, if someone like you exists in it? 

When I'm with you, I feel like anything is possible. My goals feel like they're right within my reach, and my dreams suddenly don't feel so far away. 

Knowing you'll always be here, ready to fight my battles with me, makes life seem so much simpler.

When you came along, it felt like my soul finally woke up from a heavy slumber. It felt every beat of my heart instantly had a purpose that it never did before.   

I never knew what it meant to have an "other half" until I met you. Your pure and genuine soul has never let me down. There's a reason why I can never stop smiling — I finally feel complete. 

I never knew it was possible to feel so much for another person… that someone could become a part of you.

You're the person I always want to wake up next to and kiss goodnight. When you first said "hello" to me I couldn't believe my eyes.

I've never felt safer than when I'm all bundled up in your arms. I can be anywhere in the world, and it'd always be a perfect safe haven if it's right next to you. 

I fall for you just a little bit more each and every day in a brand new way. 

I want to memorize every freckle, every scar, every crease, and every piece of you. 

The way you blink your gorgeous eyes, frown in thought, bury your head in my shoulder when you're upset… it all sends me tumbling head over heels.

Every second I spend with you is never a moment wasted. Each day, you find different ways to show all the ways in which you complete me. There's not a doubt in my mind that you are my person and always will be. I will always enjoy you for who you truly are. 

I know that in this life you are a rare gem to find and I never want to let you slip away. You will always be my one. 

"You are by far my favorite hello and my hardest goodbye."
