I’ve got the love. You’ve got the love. We’ve got the love and if we try and we try, we’ll never fail.
Being in a relationship is not always what everyone thinks it is. It’s not waking up every morning to pancakes and mimosas. Sometimes it’s a muffin and coffee because you just didn’t have time. It’s not always cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It’s not always a clean home and a homemade meal every night. Sometimes it’s someone who steals all the covers and you wake up cold. It’s slammed doors and few harsh words, fights and the silent treatment. It’s sometimes wondering if you’ve made the right decision.But despite all of those things, it is the one thing you look forward to every day.
It’s coming home to the one person you know loves and cares about you more than any other person in the world. It’s laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. It’s nightly sleepovers with your best friend. It’s cooking the cheapest and easiest meal and sitting down together at 10 pm because you’ve both had a crazy day. It’s when you have an emotional breakdown and your love lays on the floor with you, holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It’s when “Netflix and chill” literally means you watch Netflix and hang out. It’s about loving someone who makes you absolutely insane and insanely happy.
Every day with the person you love is countless fights about absolutely nothing, but even more smiles for no real reason at all. People spend their entire lives looking for the perfect love. Today I recognize that although love is imperfect, I couldn’t imagine life without my love. He is my reason to believe after I’d lost faith in love. He has shown me what it really means to love unconditionally & he has proven to me that although love may not be perfect and some days are difficult, it is worth every risk we take. So, to my best friend, I say happy lover’s day. You are imperfectly perfect, Darius, and I am grateful to God every day for you. Thank you for making my dreams reality. I’ve got the love. You’ve got the love. We’ve got the love and if we try and we try, we’ll never fail. ❤
