This Love

November 30, 2013

I sit in complete satisfaction
I sit with complete confidence
I sit with myself
Beside the girl I love
Beside the person who holds my hand
I sit in the company of complete trust
I sit, in love, in this state
In love with this place
In love with this girl

The only one who truly understands
All of who I am today
All of who I once was
And all of who I will be tomorrow
She makes me feel so safe
She makes me feel life
In a way in which I once ignored
I love her so much
And all I want to do right now
Is read all of these words to her
She is the best thing that has ever happened to me
She has centred me
And given me the strength to ground all of who I am
She shares laughter at just the right moments
She shares conversation in just the right places
She shares love, as it can be seen on our faces
Amanda is her name
Blake is mine


I remember when we took the photos of the birds

I remember when we shared the view 19 floors up

I remember when we got our first dog

And a little while later she came home and surprised me with a second

I remember standing on top of a ski hill in the summer

Taking a picture

And thinking that she was an angel

I remember when she said yes

I remember when we first met

I remember when she said "I love you" a minute ago

And the countless times, those words, shes has said before

I remember why I love her

And that I'm so lucky to have met her

And, this love, I'll always remember

This love, I'll never let go
