If you ask why I love you and find that words escape me, please don’t be saddened by my silence. When you see me staring at you, hesitant to open my mouth; please don’t doubt me. If by chance you hear that I simply walked away when asked why I feel the way I do for you, please don’t be disappointed. When I’m alone and crying; please don’t think I have given up. When you find me moving on with life; please don’t think I have forgotten you.
Because with every breath I take and with every beat of my heart I am thankful that you are in my life. No amount of words can validate this feeling.
As soon as I try to open my mouth so I can tell you what you are to me, an overwhelming sensation prevents me to continue because my mind ceases to think. I know that no one else can grasp how fulfilling it is to be loved by you.
As my eyes linger, I weaken…and at times, that weakness turns to fear. I am terrified that all of this is temporary; like numerous things in my life. But I have faith.
Along with every drop of tear I shed, my faith strengthens and it will carry me through; making time grow smaller; small enough to be insignificant.
I move as life moves and I patiently wait for distance to diminish. Each day that passes brings me closer to the truth…and happiness; a happiness that I hope is you.
