Because of you

 

Remember when we asked each other out,

At the same time?

It was then I knew that you were perfect for me

But I was still so nervous

because I’ve always had terrible relationships

But because of you I know what real love is

 

You don’t control everything I do

You let me be independent

You let me make my own decisions

And you love all my friends

 

You support my dreams

And I support yours

We don’t lie to each other

Except for that one time I told you I didn’t eat the last Oreo

 

I feel peaceful around you

I feel safe

You give me space when I need it

But you're always waiting for me when I need to talk

 

We treat each other with such respect

You respect my friends

And my opinions

Even if you don’t agree with them

 

You never force or insist me to do anything I don’t want to do

And I never force you to do anything

We don’t abuse each other like they used to

The only thing we insist on each other is to wear fuzzy socks in the winter

 

We aren’t dependent on each other

Except for the Netflix password because I keep forgetting it

We have good relationships with people outside of our house

And we both know that if this relationship has to end, we’ll respect it

 

You’re the best thing that ever happened to me

Because of you I don’t have to sleep with my eyes open

Because of you I don’t have to walk on eggshells

Because of you I’m finally complete

 

I want to spend the rest of my life with you

And the answer to your question of marrying you

my answer is

Yes
