Our Love Story

My favourite love story is ours.

You tell it best.

You held my attention before we met.

I adored the ground you walked on, before your first step.

I imagined up our future memories, before any had been made.

I held you longer than my arms knew they could.

I rested into you.

You rested into me.

I stopped to take in the scenery again, and even through the storms, it was beautiful.

Little things brought me joy, watching you.

Even dust swirling in the sunlight seemed like magic.

You slowed me down.

You gave me strength.

I gave you life,

and you gave me life back.

Our love story is the best I’ve heard.

You spoke to my heart,

before your first word.
