she is not “my girl.”

she belongs to herself. & i am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, & night-by-night.

how much more blessed can i be?

coming home to her every night means so many things. it is a literal action, an abstract idea, a physical feeling. it is a choice, a promise & a declaration. it is a return, not as a person to a place but from oneself to another. it is one individual saying to another you are the one i choose. so show her off. shout to the world that she is yours & you are hers. take pictures of her when she’s not looking - you are capturing all the moments you love about her & what make her yours that she does not yet know exist. be spontaneous. never stop reminding her that she is the one you choose & continue to choose everyday.

words may sound nice to the ear, but only actions vibrate through the heart for all eternity. actions are louder than words, always.

it is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. we all know that our time in this world is limited, & that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. & yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. it is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, & thinking there is one more stair than there is. your foot falls down, through the air, & there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try & readjust the way you thought of things

it’s one thing to tell her that she’s beautiful, but it’s another thing to make her feel it too
