“It’s late at night, I leave her sleeping in bed to go outside to talk to a friend that just needed to talk. We talked about life, how fast it goes, our friends, the good times and the bad times. We talked about how life can get us down and how we need to be strong no matter what trouble may bring us.
I come back in, I walked into the bedroom — it’s dark and peaceful. You can barely see your way to make it to the bed from the bathroom light, but what I saw laying there, was her. My one and only! My life, my rock, my best friend, my girlfriend, and so forth, but most of all, my fiancée!
I couldn’t help but stand there and gaze at her with my own two eyes, it was more than perfect. SHE was perfect! She laid there with her AC/DC shirt on, and her new hair color that she trusted me to put in her hair. It reminded me why I loved her so much. She can rock out anything, and be so beautiful while doing it. She doesn’t need make-up, she doesn’t need lipstick, she doesn’t need her hair done.
She’s perfect when she does nothing at all.
She laid there knowing I was coming back to her, knowing I won’t ever leave her. She can take on anything herself, she’s strong! But she knows I’ll take care of her when she can’t. I don’t give her the credit she deserves.
All men out there, don’t ever think just because you have been with someone for a long time — doesn’t matter if it’s a year or 30 years — keep that fire burning. Tell her she’s beautiful. When she’s having a rough day, tell her you’re there for her and let her rest herself on you. Tell her you’ll be her shoulder when she needs to cry, you’ll be her rock when she’s ready to take the stress from the world off of her, and you’ll take it on! Show her there’s no other woman out there who could ever take her place.
Sometimes it takes a while for them to give up their heart, but if you want it bad enough, fight for it. I fought everyday through thick and thin for her love. Do whatever it takes. Love her on her good days and love her even more on her bad days. Life isn’t easy, and love is not easy. Love will hurt, but you live once! I’m going to love her with all my heart until death because my love for someone doesn’t end.
The way she looks at me when it’s just us home and I look into her eyes and play the guitar and sing to her, knowing I have no clue what I’m singing, but she doesn’t care. She’s in the moment.
We’re best friends. At times we will walk in the door and fall to the floor and look at each other and laugh for no reason until we cry.
So, to finish my night off, I slipped into bed. I rubbed my fingers through her hair, I wrapped my arm over her, kissed her forehead and whispered in her ear, ‘I LOVE YOU.’
She’s my girl! Tell your girl you love her.”
