“You, my love, gave me the greatest gift.
You said you loved me.”
Oh, but the thunderous applause of my heart was deafening. At first, I wasn’t sure if I imagined the words that slipped past your lips, or if maybe it was an illusion — a dream so beautiful, I never wanted to wake up. You made me open my eyes for the first time and truly accept what I only thought could be imagined. You, my love, gave me the greatest gift anyone could have given me. You said you loved me.
