Thank you for helping me forget about him. Thank you for mending my broken heart. Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for holding me when I cry. Thank you for always calling me beautiful. Thank you for being the stranger that would not let me go. Thank you for all of your efforts. Thank you for showing me a kindness I did not know existed. Thank you for looking beyond the weave and make-up and just wanting me.
I see the way you treat other people and I fall even harder for you. It takes a really special person to be kind to everyone, regardless of the circumstance, and that is what makes you beautiful.
I remember you being there for me in the winter when I had no one. Every day you would text me and help with my anxiety. I remember sitting on the floor in my room crying because I could not handle the anxiety. I remember looking down on my phone and seeing a text from you. You said”..Tina you have a wonderful character and you should never think you are not good for anyone.” I remember smiling with tears running down my face after reading your message. I remember wondering why this guy I just met cared so much about me. You may not realize it, but this is the number one reason I fell for you. I’ve never had somebody care about me the way you do and I will always be grateful for that. I made it through that winter because of you and only you. You stuck with me through the hard times when you definitely did not have to. This may seem normal and just part of your character, but it means the world to someone like me that comes from such a broken past.
For the first time in my life, I wake up thinking about someone else. I think about how I can make your day better. I think about how I can make you happy. I think about how I can ever repay you for being as amazing as you are. I give you compliments because I want you to feel good, not because I want one back. I buy you gifts because I love to see you smile, not because I want one too. I tell you how much you mean to me because I know you would like to hear it, not because I want you to do the same to me.
I’ve never told a guy that I loved them first, especially in our situation, but I’ve told you numerous times now. At first, I told myself I was just telling you that I have love for you, then I would not be embarrassed with the outcome. But you know what, I do have love for you. I love you and I am in love with you. I am not scared, worried, or ashamed because I said it first. I simply want you to know and hopefully, that makes your day a little better.
You make me want to be the best person I can be. You put a smile on my face every day. You show me that genuinely good people still exist. You have helped me in more ways then you will ever know. Happy is the simplest way I can explain how I feel with you. A better way would be to think about how happy you get when you get to have a BBQ or how happy you get to sleep.
I want you to know that no matter what, you made my life so much better and you have made me happier than I have ever been in my life.
Best birthday ever.
