circa January 2011, a month before we started dating
There is this boy.
He puts life and light into my world.
His very presence turns my bad day around.
His ridiculous characters are endearing.
His conversations are enlightening.
His smile is comforting.
There is no such thing as a lazy day with him,
because even if we just sit and talk,
every moment with him is a grand adventure.
He pushes me to be better, go farther, and do better.
He inspires me daily to become a better person, a more daring person, a more confident person.
He teaches me about love and about overcoming.
He teaches me about friendship and trust and companionship.
He shows me the world through a different lens,
and he encourages me to defend my own with everything I have.
He is my best friend, my partner in crime, and the love of my life.
I love you, Matt.
