To My Girlfriend: You Are More Than Just Love, You Are Everything

To My Girlfriend: You Are More Than Just Love, You Are Everything

Never once have I found someone that holds every bit of beauty this earth has to offer in her soul, until I met you.

This holds so much more meaning than simply "love." It holds hope, comfort, and warmth. It holds the world, because until I met you..

I have loved many things before--

people that have stepped into my life,

and then stepped back out.

Songs that have soaked through my soul

like water through the parched earth.

Endless comings and goings,

lights on buildings, leaves on trees,

the sounds that reverberate through

my life like wind chimes through the breeze.

If you ask me,

I have loved many things.

But never once have I looked into

blinking eyes and found solace

in the tumultuous happenings of life,

until I met you.

Never once have I found someone

that holds every bit of beauty

this earth has to offer in her soul,

until I met you.

If words can't describe how I feel,

then I am at a loss for them,

because you have spread through

my soul like warmth on a bitter

cold day,

always welcomed, comforting, peacefully

there to thaw the hurt within the ice.

I have longed for you without knowing;

every event in my life

leading to the day when we found

ourselves beneath an overhang,

and a skirt blew in the wind.
