My Everything

“And I owe you everything.
Because you saved me from myself.
You became my everything.”

Tonight, it feels like you’re miles away from me. And all that’s left is me and the moon. It’s not yet full, but it’s still glowing through my windows, reminding me that I’m not alone. I know that no matter how much sleep I lose, or how much agony I feel, you will be there waiting for me with open arms. And I know that is the comfort I really need.

I don’t know if there are enough words to tell you how much I love you for that. But not just for being my rock. For being there. No matter where my moods were swinging. No matter when I couldn’t speak through my tears. You’ve made me laugh, you’ve given me tears of genuine happiness. And I owe you everything. I owe you my undying gratitude for being the one that saved me from myself. For being the one person that understands me on a level no one else ever has. For standing still when my mind travels light years away, and waiting patiently for me to return again.

What can I possibly say to encompass what you mean to me? You are my everything. And I thank my lucky stars and the moon every night for a chance to see another day.

It’s you. It’s always been you.
