A Love Letter

love letter | slightly off kilterSince the moment we met I knew my life was forever altered.  I’ve lost track of the details of that fateful day, but only because there are so many new moments we’ve shared competing for space in my brain.  I don’t know if you realize just how important you are to me.

You make me smile even on the darkest of days and give me strength each morning to start again.

You’ve given me the gift of patience to tackle whatever life may throw my way.

Sometimes knowing that we will soon be together is the only thing that gives me the strength to extricate myself from the warmth of my slumber.   You are my first thought in the morning and I am anxious for the moment we again meet.

You help me to think deeply and profoundly and I can tell when we are apart for too long because my thoughts become jumbled and frantic.

You’ve inspired me to read more… even in the late hours of the night when I should be sleeping.

You make my heart race.  You make even the deepest darkest parts of me feel alive.

You make the chaos make sense.

And then, when we are together again, your warmth fills every inch of me with a satisfaction like no other.

Sure, there have been times when you’ve burned me… bitter moments that I’d rather forget.  I know there are times I’ve turned my back on you too, but I always come back.  And you always accept me. Without expectation or judgement.

I can’t imagine living without you in my life.

You have always been there for me in even the toughest of times.  Always the strong one when I was not…carrying me through moments that I wouldn’t have otherwise survived.  You’ve been there for me when no one else was – through the happies and the crappies you have been by my side.  Always dependable.  Always strong.  Always ready to lift me back up.

I need you. You make me a better person. One that people actually want to be around.

Coffee, I love you.
