How do you know when you really love someone?

by alittlehoneyformyheart

When you see them at their lowest point and realize that, on the contrary, there’s nothing more you’d rather do than to stay and love them for the rest of your life.

When they’re on the brink of humiliation and disappointment and all you want to do is wrap your arms around them and tell them you’ve never loved them more than at that very moment.

“Don’t leave me” but all you can do is laugh and hug them tighter because “silly, why would ever i do such a thing?”

And then you know.

You know that things are different when they have nothing to offer you but all you can think of is how much you want to give to them.

When they know that you want the one thing that they can’t give to you at that moment but all that’s running through your head is “you’ve given me so much already, how can i begrudge you of the love that you’ve earned and deserved your whole life by just being you?”

All the doubts and the questions just melt away and right then you know that there was never a choice to make anyway because all along it was always him and him only. Anyone and anything else is just a distraction and time wasted because why fight for a empty, barren plot of land when all this time, the world was already in your hands?

And i can only hope to do the same for you and to be the person that you are and always have been to me.
