Get it here:
I woke up this morning with you in my arms and thought to myself, ‘I want to do this for the rest of my life.’ You in my arms is perfection. It’s cosmic. It’s simply the way we are supposed to be.
I couldn’t wake you. You were sleeping so soundly.
I know that you and I are moving fast. It’s exhilarating. When I’m with you Lex, it’s like we were never apart.
A lot has happened between then and now, but the now is what I want us to concentrate on. Now it’s you and me. You are what’s important. We are the only thing that matters to me anymore.
What happened in the past is irrelevant. I want you. I want you always.
You are what I see when I look into the future. Five years from now, ten years from now, hell fifty years from now, you are there.
As a teenager and young man, I loved you. You were my everything. But I didn’t really understand what that meant. Now, as a man, I love you even more.
You are the reason I smile, Lex. You are the first thing I want to see when I wake up and the last thing I want to see before falling asleep. I want to see you smile every day and I want to know that I’m the reason you’re smiling.
These next few weeks are going to be hard for me. I’ve gotten so used to you, to sleeping with you, to talking with you, to kissing you, to just being with you, that it’s kind of hard for me to imagine me functioning without you.
Know that I may not be next to you, but that you are with me. Always. In my head and in my heart. You’re a part of me again. The most important part of me. Lex, you own me. You own my heart.
I’ve left you the keys to my house and my car. I want you to use them and I want you to give serious consideration to moving in with me when I get back.
We’re adults. I know what I want, and what I want is you. It’s always been you.
I see no need to beat around the bush.
I want you. In my life, in my arms, in my bed. Every night.
Think about it…
You own my heart. You own everything I am.
I love you Lex.
