I remember the first time I saw you. I didn't know your name, although I really wanted to. You didn't know who I was (or so I thought), but one thing was for sure: That what would come out of the summer of 2017 was something I would hold in my heart forever. I went into the summer thinking I was only going to focus on the end goal which was getting better at my craft. Two weeks in you caught my eye, to be more specific the trees on your arm and the little mustache you had going on.
I was so nervous to talk to you, so that's why Tam gave me a helping hand. I don't really know why I was so nervous. Maybe because I knew I you were different from me and I wanted you to like me. Anyway, we started talking and I realized we were not that different at all, it was the opposite we would both rather do nothing all day and that was the winning ticket for me, but I knew the long distance was going to be the greatest challenge.
I want to thank you for always being so opened and silly with me, the way you and I make music is something I will never forget. I have never had this much freedom to be myself and really let anyone plant seeds in my heart. I am thankful that you keep watering my garden and don't let my flowers wilt or grow weeds.
I know times get rough between us and when we I am on the edge somehow you always find a way of grabbing my had and telling me it will all be ok. This is what relationships need to have when one person is uneasy the other needs to know when it's time to give reassurance. I am grateful that you are my sun and always manage to shine through the gloomiest of days.
There aren't enough words in this world that can describe how many roots you have grown in me. There is not a single word that can describe the way I feel when I am with you and in a strange way, I believe that this feels right. I love the way you sleep and how peaceful you look, I sometimes thank whatever power is out there for putting such a beautiful work of art in front of me.
I know we are all scared of letting someone in, but if we don't allow ourselves to be vulnerable how will we ever feel what love is supposed to feel like. I know it's very hard to describe what love feels like but my interpretation goes like this: You can't imagine your life without them, it feels wrong seeing yourself with another person, you feel tremendous appreciation and protection towards them. The most important one, your heart flutters every time you see them and hear their name.
There are not enough words that I can compile together to express my love for you but one thing is for sure, I will always make sure you know what a big part of my world you are.
