If I could describe what loving you is like to someone who never felt love before, it would be easy. Loving you is like taking those first steps into a pool, slow and cautious, laughing to your friends because the water is so cold. Feeling the water finally touch the bottom of your stomach and that first rush of goosebumps fly over your skin. Next thing you know you’re shoulders deep into the water, still laughing and giggling about the cold, but slowly starting to feel comfortable. You swim around and get use to your new surroundings. You kick, pull, push, and float; it’s like a whole new world to you, and eventually you find yourself not wanting to leave. So you stay. You stay until your lips turn purple, the tips of fingers and toes turn to prunes, and you’re shivering, but you’re so comfortable. Eventually you leave though, and as you leave you think to yourself “I can’t wait to come back”.
And that’s what love is like.
It’s new and exciting, yet comfortable.
It’s what pushes you through another day, just so you can come back to the one who makes you feel loved.
It’s like swimming.
And for me,
Well, I’m swimming in your love.
I sit in my chair and begin to wonder, how many times have I thought about you? How many times have you crossed my mind, and how many times do I find myself lost in these thoughts?
Well, how many stars can the night sky hold?
I love you in moments that I am with you, and in moments that I am not. You are flooded in my every thought and dream. You don’t know how happy I am when I’m with you. Cliches, metaphors, similes, are all thrown out of the window, because simply I’m lost for words except for these three: I love you.
If I could spend nearly every second with you doing nothing, I would. And that still wouldn’t be enough. I love you in moments that I am with you, and in moments that I am not.
