To my One True Love

  • by

My life is separated into a time before I met you, and then with you in my life. From the moment I first saw you, I knew I loved you, and that my life would never be the same. I felt my world shift, and couldn’t remember what life was like without you in it.  

Some days I can just sit and watch you being you, watch how you smile or laugh when something happens on TV, or how happy you are to see me when you get home. How the first thing you do is kiss me and wrap your arms around me. That feeling is irreplaceable. You look at me and I feel an ache in my heart, because I can’t hug you or kiss close enough to show you how much I love you.  

I love when I’m in bed, that when you come and get in the first thing you do is cuddle me and tell me how much you love me. That we can have a war of love on ‘love you more’. I hope you will never change, that you will always love me this way, no matter how old we are.  

When I am sick, you try to help, even if that’s a gentle cuddle to let me know you’re there, and that you care.  Some days you drive me completely crazy, but I won’t let the sun go down on an argument, and we always kiss and make up. You’re so peaceful when you sleep that I could watch you all night.  We go on adventures, we talk until we can talk no more, and we walk hand in hand into difficult situations, each there for the other in a time of need.  

You’ve changed me forever and there’s no going back. I wouldn’t swap this life with you for all the money in the world. You’re my reason, you’re my sunshine, you’re my whole purpose to go on.  

So to you, my beautiful son – my true love, and the only boy for me. I love you unconditionally to infinity and back 💙
