If you let me do it, that’s how I would love you

If you let me do it, I would love every part of you, even your faults and your anxieties, even the parts that hurt and the problems that you don’t let see. I’ll let you know every day that you’re perfect the way you are, just like that, and that you’re making the world a better place. Even with your ramparts so high, I would break them, demolish them piece by piece, no matter how long it takes, because I want to be able to hold your hand and see your eyes shine when you smile.

If you let me do it, I would embrace all your worries and pains.

I’ll let you know every day how grateful I am for your existence, even if you feel like the world has turned its back on you, I’ll always be there. When you get tired, I will be there watching your eyes float while you are dreaming, and when the nightmares come, I will be there to hug you and tell you that everything will be fine.

If you let me do it, I would sing for you every day, until we only hear music and dance every night.

I’ll make you soup when you’re sick, and I’ll sing you lullabies until you fall asleep. I would be your friend, I would listen to your stories, your worries and your wonderful stories, those that make your eyes grow with excitement. I would be your lover, I would remind you every day that you are important and loved and that I need you. I would always be amazed by you, even through time.

If you allowed me, I would love you all your life, I would stay with you even in times of conflict, even if you want to give up. And even if you made me walk for hours and my feet hurt, I would continue to walk, and I would continue to love. Because people are still leaving, but I’ll be the one to stay. It’s scary, I love you, but I’m here, and I’ll always be there. I won’t run the other way when things get difficult, and I won’t wish for anything else.

If you allowed me, I would love all the suffering you went through and I would celebrate every moment of happiness with you.

I would laugh with you every day of our lives, even in difficult times, even if no one else understands. I would think of you in the middle of the day, and before I close my eyes at night, I would pray for you, I would send you light and love. I would let you know every day how much I admire your strength and the beauty of your heart, that the world needs a lot more of you. I would watch the flowers bloom with you, and hold your hand as the seasons change.

I would love you even when it hurts, even when it could be difficult.

I would love you even if we are tired, even if we need more time to heal. I would like the ground under your feet and the air above your head. I would give you all my heart, without reserve and without limits, I would open myself to you, and I would agree to the possibility of being injured.

Because you deserve love – unconditional, limitless, uncompromising love; love without reason, love that lasts, love that always forgives. And if you let me do it, that’s how I would love you.
