When I say that I love you, I don't say it out of my habit. I say it because I want to remind you constantly that you're being loved, and that there's someone out there in this world who loves you more than you think you deserve to be loved.
When I say that I love you, I don't say it for something temporary. I say it because I want to grow old with you. I want to look at our old photographs and laugh at all the memories related to those, when our hairs are constantly graying.
When I say that I love you, I don't say it to show off. I say it because I don't want you to go to sleep, feeling unloved. I don't want you to cry in your sleep. I don't want you to be afraid that I might leave you someday.
When I say that I love you, I don't say it to flatter you. I say it to make you believe that your flaws and imperfections are what I crave for all the time. I say it to make you stop worrying about the mistakes that you made in your life, and to finally make you believe that I'm not going anywhere.
When I say that I love you, I don't say it because I'm blind in love. I say it because my vision in loving you is completely sound. I say it because every time you're doing something which is clumsy, it makes me squeeze your cheeks and pull you closer into my arms. I say because it's okay to be different, it's okay to have rough moments. It's okay to not be perfect. It's okay to not be like every other guy. Because you're beautiful in your own way. You're fucking beautiful. And I cannot imagine you being insecure about yourself, because you're fucking everything that I've ever loved. I say it because I don't want you to think that abs and muscles are what makes a guy desirable. It's who you are that I'm in love with, not your face. Not your body.
And when I say that I love you, I say it because I fucking mean it. And because I fucking love you, even in your hardest days when you don't feel like getting out of the bed or when you feel like you're going insane with the amount of pressure that your pasts put on you.
I love you and I'm always here. No matter what.
I love you.
