Dear New Person In My Life (Who Means More Than They Know)

First of all, I just want to say thank you.

It's not too often that I let new people in, like I let you, and you've been proving to me that it was a fantastic idea.

Because as we all know, not everyone we invite into our private space showed us that they belonged there.

For some reason, you were just... different.

It was only after a few days with you that I realized I needed to keep you in my life.

Then it was only a few days after that that I forgot what my life was like before you came in it.

It's funny, though, isn't it? How someone you didn't know suddenly comes in and turns your world absolutely upside down.

I know how crazy it may sound, but like I said before, I need to keep you in my life.

Though it feels like I've known you forever, it's only been a few weeks.

So as you can imagine, there's still a lot left to learn about me.

You don't know what keeps me up at night (a lot of things), or what I dream about (what my future it going to look like). You don't know my aspirations, or my hopes and goals (I want to be a history major, and I really hope I can do this whole thing right).

You don't know where I want to go to college (New Paltz or Adelphi, preferably), or what I like to put in my tea and coffee (a few splashes of milk, and 2 sugars with a teaspoon of honey).

Let's be real, you don't even know my favorite food (it's chicken parm).

It's the same thing with you.

I don't know as much as I wish I did.

Normally I like it when someone knows all of this about me, but you... you don't have to know anything to know what to do to me.

You know when to squeeze my hand, and when to kiss my forehead.

You know when to ask me if I'm okay, and you always know what to say to make me laugh.

You don't know how much I love hearing stories about you... but you don't have to know — you're always telling them anyway.

I can't even tell you what it is about you.

The way we stay up late talking (or when we fall asleep on each other like most nights). Maybe the way you make me feel like the most important person in the world.

The way you make me smile and laugh when I'm having the worst day ever. The way you make me blush every time you tell me I'm beautiful.

No matter what it may be, when you put all of these things together, I'm just–happy.

Something I feel like I haven't been in a while.

It was a feeling that I thought I knew, but after meeting you I knew it had a whole new definition.

To be happy before was to smile and laugh with my friends.

It was to giggle and feel joyful.

But now... being with you was complete and total euphoria.

A strong word, with an even stronger meaning – but it just feels like the right one.

I never knew that there was someone like you out there, but I'm so so so lucky to have found out.

Thank you for coming into my life when I didn't even know I needed you.

You've made it better than you can ever imagine, and I can't wait to see where this goes.

Some people truly are – a gift.
