To You, I Vow... by @Love_Chan
How much do you really know the person you’re spending so much time with? Have you taken the time to learn about them? Have you put in the effort to understand them? You don’t have to agree with them but at least see things from their side. I don’t want to figure you out; I want to get to know you on a deeper level.
Forever is all the time we need to make this never ending journey. From the day that we met, I knew that I needed you more than anything. I needed you more than anyone else. I knew that I was willing to spend the rest of my life improving our relationship. No detail too minuscule. No situation too complex.
We’ve shared early morning dreams and late night goals. This was our thing. We were inseparable then and we still are now. Just the thought of how far we’ve come makes me smile. A little piece of my tattered heart regenerates with each moment we share. The same heart that has been crushed, ripped, smashed, taped up and sent on its way still has hope. This is nothing short of true happiness. A feeling of euphoria; dopamine shoots through my veins with each step that we take together. This was meant to be. Not a soul has come close to delivering or recreating the feeling that you give me. No one has made sense of my being misunderstood. There is no bond like ours. I’d put my life on that.
So from this day on, I vow to be a better person to you. I vow to be a better person to the most important person in my life – myself. When you love yourself, it’s so much easier to see those around you for who they are instead of who you want them to be. It’s hard to shortchange yourself when you’re in love with you. It’s hard to let negativity around you when you know how priceless you are. So I vow to be free of judgment. I vow to be realistic. I vow to never spoon-feed myself shit covered in sugar. I vow to never accept wooden nickels or any love less than what I put out.
To you, I vow…
