If it hadn’t been for him, and her, and them; I never would have met YOU. At one point we had significant others going about our lives. We met in the simplest of ways - through a mutual friend one simple day. At the time, I had someone and you were with yours. I never would have thought we’d be here today. We didn’t come together in the easiest of ways, because let’s be honest; it was painful as fuck, but the outcome was blissful. He hurt me. She hurt you. We learned to fix each other and mend what was so bent- it broke. I fell into your arms and with confidence, you caught me.
What amazed me the most was that night we sat in my car on the way to Ktown and you finished my sentence. We both wanted the same things. We didn’t want to fill a void to ease the pain, but to find someone we could make a forever with. A love with. A future with. It stunned me how much we had in common, how much alike we thought, spoke, and felt. All I see is how cute your laugh is when Josh cracks jokes. Or how when I pinch your hip bone in just the right spot, I know it tickles. Not to mention the way you surprisingly just grab my face and kiss me, or tell me I’m pretty, or tell me I’m beautiful. Just the little things, make me fall so much harder for you.
You did what I always wanted someone to do. You accepted me. You saw the worst before you could see the best. You helped me when I needed it without second thoughts. You let me in, not just into your mind but into your heart. I’ll never take that for granted. I’ll never take you for granted.
I still remember the first day I met you. It was warm, I was meeting up at the skate park in Ktown with Caryn. When I got there, the first thing I saw was you. Your dark hair that matched your dark eyes. They were so deep I thought they’d caught my soul wen they met my gaze. Your tanned carmel skin, with permanent ink telling stories of past hardships and a better person because of it. There you sat, but never really said anything. Just your gaze caught me in my tracks and I was stuck.
I never thought that today, I would within your grasp. Your wondering thoughts and even a part of your future. I never thought I’d be able to hold you, kiss you, and call you mine. I’m truly the happiest person I’ve ever been in a really long time. It’s all because of YOU. Just know, you saved me.
I smile and it’s real. And You, Cody Dockery, are the reason behind it. So here’s to US with more to come. ♥
