You said, “If you come here and that happens I’m not ever going to let you go again. I’m going to marry you.” I looked up at you in shock as you said it. I think you were pretty damn surprised you said it too. I could feel the biggest smile growing on my face and in my heart. And you saw that too. For once I was speechless… until I told you what you said made me the happiest I’d been in a long long time. By far.
I felt something awaken in me that I thought was dead. So dead I barely remembered ever knowing what that feeling was. Surely a feeling like that could never be wrong I thought to myself. I knew my reaction; my smile was a reflection of my true feelings. You looked relieved and were smiling too.
I try not to remember that moment. It’s like remembering our walk on the beach and me stopping to kiss you moment. To know we are never going to have any more moments like those gets to me every time.
