My love, I know your life is busy, but just for a few moments, stop, read and absorb each one of these reasons why I love you.

I know I don’t always tell you. And sometimes I hurry about my day and forget to show you.

So, listen carefully and hear my voice as you linger on each one.

Please. Let the words sink in.

And know this. I will love you, always.


  1. You found me. You actually did. I still don’t know how exactly it happened that we were right where we were meant to be at that exact time in our lives. But, I will be grateful for it forever.
  2. You loved me instantly. Before you even knew me. You already knew.
  3. You never faltered and you had faith in us. Even when I stumbled slightly in the very beginning. You never swayed.
  4. You accept me. My light and my shadow. Even though we are different, you never try to change me. I am me when I am with you.
  5. You show me you. You opened yourself up, cracked your heart wide open and you allowed me in.
  6. I love your voice. It somehow resonates deeply in my soul.
  7. Because you know me even when I struggle to know myself.
  8. How your fantasies blend with mine.
  9. Because when we fight it is never traumatic because we both know it will never be the end.
  10. And how you are never stubborn in making up. Well, at least not for too long…
  11. When my phone rings, I always hope it is your name that appears on the screen. Even if you just called me two minutes before.
  12. I love how you tell me that this is like nothing you have experienced before.
  13. And I believe you. I believe it all.
  14. I trust you with my life and my heart. I know I am safe in your arms.
  15. And you would protect me with your life.
  16. How every day you teach me something new.
  17. And you allow me to teach you things that I know you have little interest in.
  18. I love the way you sing to me, especially when it is our song that plays.
  19. And how you tell me stories about your childhood and I imagine how you were back then.
  20. How still your kiss does crazy things to my insides.
  21. And when you touch me, I forget the rest of the world exists.
  22. I love how we are a team, the perfect balance.
  23. And how I feel like I’ve known you the whole of my life.
  24. I love your feminine and masculine too.
  25. I love how you are present with me, and you absorb me completely.
  26. How I miss you the second you leave. And even before sometimes.
  27. How you call me out when I try to push the boundaries.
  28. And how you tell me without any doubt that I am the only one in the world for you.
  29. I love how you get mad with me when I question your love. Because it frustrates you that I would ever question how devoted you are.
  30. And how you forgive me so quickly for everything else that I say and do that hurts you. And you never mention it again.
  31. I love how you allow me to put my cold hands and feet on your warm body.
  32. And how you run my bath adding candles and extra bubbles.
  33. I love the way you look at me when you haven’t seen me for a few hours.
  34. And also how you look at me when we have made extra special love.
  35. I hate it when we fight but love that our making up makes everything better.
  36. I love how we imagine a wild and wonderful future together. And then make the plans to make it happen.
  37. How when I act a little crazy you smile and soothe my aches.
  38. And I love the way I catch you watching me as though you are in awe at what you see.
  39. I love how quickly I turn you on and how easily you pleasure me.
  40. And how you always make me tea before I wake each day.
  41. I love how I often fail to understand you. You puzzle my mind. And that’s good.
  42. And how I often know your thoughts when no words have been spoken.
  43. I love how when I ask you how much you love me you tease me and give the most ridiculous replies.
  44. And did I tell you… I love you because I love you. I love you.


And if you ever forget please, My Love, return to the beginning and read again.
