When I’m with you, I act different. In a good way of course. I smile more and laugh more. I don’t have to pretend everything is okay when it’s really not. With you, I can drop the fake smile and put on a real one. I don’t feel hurt and alone when I’m with you. Instead, I feel safe and loved. You’re easy to talk to, and you listen to me. I don’t have to worry about holding back with you. I don’t feel self conscious. I don’t ever feel insecure or sad. You show me that you really do care, and you’re not just pretending. I really appreciate your company, because with you I’m different. With you, I’m happy.
People should know how you feel about them. Before it’s too late, you should tell them. Before they’re gone and you can’t remember the last time he said, “I love you.” Or if you said it back. Before you can’t remember if he kissed you goodnight or told you to sleep well. If you took it for granted that he was always there.
