A Letter To You

Dear you,

You are an incredible, awe-inspiring, thoughtful, kind human being. You deserve someone who will love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all that you will be.

So why is it that I love you, even though I can’t be that person for you right now?

Because you are all of the above and so much more. You make me smile just by being in my presence, even if for a second, you are the one who makes my day better. I don’t know how you do it.

You deserve someone who is just as amazing and unique as you are. Someone who will care for you before themselves, someone who puts you first and will always be there for you. Someone who will laugh with you and all your dumb little jokes. Someone who understands and accepts you and your past, for all that it is, the good and the bad. Sees how it shaped the wonderful person you are today.

Someone who will lay with you and watch dumb, random movies or shows you find that you think both of you would enjoy. Someone who puts up with how much you are on your computer; heck, someone who will sit with you in the same room on their computer at the same time. Someone who will join in when you need a dance party, even at 2 a.m. Someone who will meet you at Steak ‘n Shake at 3 a.m. when life has you down and you just need someone there.

Someone who will smile at you while you play around on the guitar, absentmindedly plucking the strings and coming up with your own melodies and singing nonsense words. Maybe they’ll even join in with their own lyrics. Someone who will sit with you in silence, silence so peaceful you don’t mind having them there. Someone who is always there. Someone who has you on their mind all the time and sends you (what they think are) funny texts, just to try to make you smile throughout the day.

Someone who sticks around when things get rough, doesn’t run away or tries to avoid you. Someone who will be there to hold you when you cry, even if you don’t want them to be, holding you tighter when you start to scream and hit them. Someone who sees through the mask you put on for the rest of the world.

Someone who understands.

Someone who makes you feel comfortable.

Someone who makes you not as scared to face the world.

Someone who is as wonderful as you.

Someone who makes you truly happy.

Someone who is not me (for now).
