To Mikey on our celebration of 10 years,
We have an epic love- an everlasting one. The kind they’ve written about since the beginning of time, and will continue to pen long after we’ve turned to dust.
Love songs can’t touch what we have.
Not even close.
In all the heartbreak and uncertainty we’ve been through, my love for you has only grown, unwavering. You’ve been my solid rock. My safe place to land.
I didn’t know love like this could exist- I’d never seen it. I’ve told you many times that I never thought I’d ever be able to find someone who would love me this much. And that was just in the beginning.
Every time I think I couldn’t love you more- I do.
From the first moment you put your hand in mine, so many years ago- back when I thought we couldn’t be more than best friends, I knew I was in trouble. From our first date when you kissed me goodbye, I knew that was the beginning of our forever.
People will always roll their eyes and laugh when I gush about how much I love you- but when I look you in the eyes, I know you love me just as much. Maybe a little more.
We’ve spent 1/3 of our lives together. I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown. I only hope and pray we still have many decades left together, and that when we’re 100 we leave this earth, holding each other.
I know it’s not always easy loving me. And life hasn’t always been kind. But it has still been the fairy-tale I always dreamed it would be.
And here we are- living our happily ever after.
