You Know How You Know When You've Found the One?

It’s when you finish each other’s sentences, understand each other’s toothpaste filled mumbles and comprehend the slightest facial expression.

It’s when you don’t mind sleeping with a sweat soaked eye mask (courtesy of your beloved) because you know they only wanted to be close to your side of the bed.

It’s when you find secret notes in your lunch pledging their undying love and all consuming misery when you’re away.

It’s when you are content with a movie, a bottle of wine and a block of cheese than any other bar or club, just as long as they’re there with you.

It’s when you realize they’re worth it.

It’s when you’ve found someone who will always tell you, no matter what the day may have brought or what their mood, that you are the queen of their life and they love you more than anything in this world.

And you believe them.

It’s when you still get butterflies in the pit of your stomach driving home from work to see them.

It’s when the sappy songs on the radio STILL relate to you after more than a year.

It’s when you’re heart simply breaks at the mere thought of them experiencing pain.

It’s when you’re life slowly begins to mesh and breathe and synchronize with theirs.

It’s when they give you the first bite of a meal their dying to taste or the last bite of their favorite sandwich.

It’s when they tell you they love you, fully clothed, without expectation or pretense, and mean it. Really mean it.

It’s when you envision yourself in that white dress or 6 months pregnant or with a head full of grey and they’re still always by your side.

It’s when you know your soul would be incomplete without them encompassing part of it.

It’s when you can say “I trust you” and for once you don’t have to lie.

It’s when your heart sinks interminably into the pool of their eyes.

It’s when you know. And they know. Then that’s it.

And you realize it was so worth it.

Bluebelle said...

Aww, so true. Actually I don't know about no2 'cos I'm always the one who ends up on the wrong side of the bed. I don't think I'd mind if he was on my side though, as long as he kept me warm!

Great post...and much more positive than your usual. I guess that's what love does to a girl LOL!

awwww how cute. i've been with my husband almost 8 years (married for not even a year yet) and i think the real trick is if you still feel these things in 8 years. If so - it's a pretty good thing. :)
