To My Other Half

To my lover, my best friend, my soulmate;

There's so many things I wish I could say, but don't know how. You're the best thing to happen to me, and I am beyond blessed to have you in my life. I never knew that love wasn't supposed to be so hard until I met you. Everything with you comes so easily to me. You can make me smile and laugh without even trying. You and I have so many little quirky inside jokes, and it never fails to brighten my day when I get a text from you. I love that you'll call me when I'm having a bad day, or that you'll eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with me between classes. I love sleeping next to you, and spending the day with you. I love going out to breakfast, or going to the gym, or really going anywhere with you. But a lot of the things I've just listed are all materialistic. But you give me so so much more than materialistic things. You give me happiness and strength, courage and love. You give me loyalty and faith. You show me how I should be treated, and you show me why it hasn't worked with anyone else. You calm down my anxiety, and understand my silly little quirks. You understand how hurt I've been before, and try your absolute hardest to make sure I never feel that way again. You're never pushy, and I don't think there's ever been a time when you weren't willing to listen or willing to try to understand where I was coming from. You love me when I'm not wearing any makeup, or I haven't done my hair in days. You love me in sweatpants and you're quick to tell me how beautiful you think I am when I'm shoving a burger and fries in my mouth. You don't buy me a lot of things but thats really fine with me because I would rather make memories with you that will last a life time than get things that will break or get worn out. But I'm glad we agree that we don't want our relationship to break or get worn out, and that you're willing to compromise with me to continue our silly, but loving relationship. As corny as it sounds, you really are my better half, and I'm so thankful for you and all of the memories we already have and for all of the memories yet to come. I hope one day that I'll be able to roll over in bed and lay my head on your chest as your wife. I love you, always and forever.
