Thank You

Thank you for showing me a city I never had visited.

Thank you for showing me a city you probably want to run from and I want to run to. You see it as a place where you've always been and I see it as a place that brings me peace.

Thank you for showing me places were you hold memories. And for telling me stories of these places. I listened to each and every single one.

Thank you for showing me it's okay to love again. Even though I was so terrified, and maybe still am.

Thank you for showing me it's okay to open my heart to a complete stranger. To a person that I thought I'd have dinner with and never see again.

Thank you for giving me the longest first date I've quite possibly ever been on. And for probably one of the best first kisses I've ever had.

Thank you for making me step out on a ledge and out of my comfort zone even though I didn't want to, and even though you probably had no clue.

Thank you for holding me in your arms, those arms made me feel so safe. They made the world feel like it wasn't spinning around me even for a few moments.

Thank you for loving me when I wasn't very easy to love.

Thank you for listening when I would ramble.

Thank you for wiping my tears from my eyes and telling me I am too pretty to cry.

Thank you for making me dig so deep within myself to reveal things about me that I had no clue.

Thank you for making me realize we all make mistakes and sometimes we aren't our best selves. Thank you for making me want to be a better person and to keep trying.

And most of all.....thank you for letting me have the opportunity to read this to you.

And for realizing there is positive in every negative situation if you just dig deep enough.

Thank you for making me realize why we even began.....
