It’s a little past 1am and although Valentine’s day is over, I still wanna write this to you.
There are a lot of things I want to say, but somehow I keep fumbling for words.
There are days when I wonder if I really know what love is. On some days I’m not entirely sure…
But with you…
With you I know I’ll be
I’m counting on you to teach me what love is
I want to confidently utter those three words and mean each and every syllable
Will you teach me?
You know, I’ve been thinking about our kids recently,
About how they’ll turn out to be
About the kind of parents we’ll be and if we’ll get it right
Like what do we do if Sophia or Asa gets bullied?
Or if Xavier gets injured or Christian gets into a fight?
How do we handle it?
You know how I get worried easily
I really should live in the present, shouldn’t I?
Except, you’re not here presently
And truth is, I want you to be
I need you to be here
Will you come quickly?
Come hold me in your arms and keep me safe
Come show me that true love exists
Not just in my imagination but in real life too
I’ll be waiting, like I always have
And although I don’t have the world…
I promise to give you mine
