This is how I know I love you.

A familiar ache.

A familiar taste of salty tears on my lips.

A sting.

I’ve known all these. All the reasons i’m the guarded girl I am today.

The difference is that at the end of all this temporary pain, I can smile and know that I’m looking towards permanent happiness.

It’s knowing that I want this to work even though it hurts.

It’s knowing that you give me the support that I need to pull through.

It’s knowing that I am enough for you.

It’s knowing that I let my guard down; for you.

I don’t know what the future holds, but I won’t know if I don’t try.

Thank you for your faith, determination and love.
