Do You Know Me?
Do you know me?
Do you know that the scar on my right knee is from playing football with my boy cousins? Or do you know that I'm lactose intolerant yet ice cream is my absolute favorite thing? Do you know that I love sunrises MORE than sunsets? And that I love the snow if I never have to drive in it?
Do you know that I love you? Do you know why you love me?
Do you know that I'm afraid of being betrayed? Not being able to trust you is my biggest fear. Please don't EVER betray that trust. Do you know I loved you the instant I laid eyes on you... the second time around? Do you know that if you fall asleep before I do, I stare at you from time to time and thank God for you?
Do you know that I believe in the goodness in your heart? I always have... even when we went through rough times. Does the thought of eternity scare you? Or can I count on seeing you around for a long while to come?
Do you know that I doubt you sometimes? Every now and again I question if you're really here for the long haul. But please don't doubt me. My love is genuine, strong, ever-lasting. And sometimes I'm afraid that you'll take it for granted and betray me in some form. Can you see me through it? Reassure me? And promise that our lives will continue to grow together?
Are you gonna be around?
