Know This

“My love, I want you to know
how much I love you and all that you are.”

My love, I want you to know everything I’ve ever felt for you. I want you to understand how much I tried to be everything you deserved and more. How I wanted your life to be happy and safe. But it’s never that easy. Life is beautiful and tragic all at the same time. No matter how much we hope and pray, sooner or later, we will learn both sides of that coin. But for now, and as long as I can, I want nothing more than to protect you from that darkness. I want you to feel loved. With abandon. And never be afraid to love someone the same way. I hope you know how much I love you and all that you are. And no matter where you are, you will always carry a piece of me.

I am always
with you.
