a declaration of love

Have I told you lately that I love you?

I love you because you stood up strong when the tempests of life came crashing down. I love that you use your words so bluntly, that you give your heart so entirely, and that you do it without ever expecting anything in return. I love that when a new day begins you decide to go when you could always stay. Stay in bed, stay the same, stay wild and untamed. And have you noticed that when you rub your eyes in the morning you never wipe off hope like so many do?

I love that about you.
