I found a poem today … from my love. To someone else.
And I adored it.
We both have yesterdays.
Those yesterdays make up who we are today.
Those yesterdays made the timing just right for what we have now.
Who would we be if we didn’t experience heartache, longing, change?
Who would we be if we were stagnant? Not growing, not hurting – figuring out what worked in our lives and what didn’t?
I cherish his memories. Because not only did he care for people, but he shared with me that he cared for them. I couldn’t love someone that discounted their past. Who wrote if off like it never happened.
Then it would mean I never happened.
I’m not jealous. I have such confidence in our love it’s bonkers.
I cherish every step he took – every painful step he took and kept walking!!
He has a girl – that he adores. Her name is Amy. And for a while, I had a fleeting problem with him sharing a house with her. Silly. But, you know how I am. Honest. This feeling cropped up knowing he had a past, and hopes, and dreams with her – and I was on the heels of falling in love.
Silly, because, she’s pretty freaking amazing. And she was there for him. When he needed her most.
I adore her too. And she reached out to me the other day – and while we only exchanged two IM’s, the mutual respect was there.
Things happen for a reason.
And I know that amazing woman will always be part of our lives. And she must be. Because she seees in him what I see in him. She loves him.
And he loves her.
And he has never made that a secret. And I love that about my future husband.
He adores who he adores – endlessly.
That makes me feel safe.
The honesty. The dedication. The loyalty.
What he gives to those he loves.
