The first time I saw you again

The first time I saw you again, everything changed. It was the first of many laughs, many smiles, many stories, many memories. It was the start of something greater than I could have ever imagined. It was the first day of a new life: my life with you.

Who would have guessed that the first time I saw you again would change me forever? Who would have guessed that from that moment on, you would always be a part of me? The best part of me, the other half of myself I never knew I had….

The first time I saw you again, you smiled. It was like you knew you were about to change everything. I liked you, but I was scared. I was broken and trying to find my way after being lost for too long. But you found me. I didn’t know that you’d be the one to hold my hand, to bring me back, to show me where I was supposed to be all along.

Who would have known that you were my perfect balance? The balance I’d been grasping to find each time I stumbled and fell… That all those things I’d been trying to make sense of would suddenly become clear… That your smile, your kind words, your listening ears, were all I needed to feel safe again…

The first time I saw you again, you knew you wanted to know me. You saw in me what I couldn’t see. You saw beauty when I didn’t feel beautiful, confidence when I was burdened by insecurities, wisdom and strength when I felt inadequate. You believed in my dreams. You called me incredible. You saw the light in my future. You saw the future we could have together.

Who would have thought that the first time I saw you again would be the first time I truly saw you for you? That the skinny, baby-faced kid I remembered passing by in the halls of school year after year would be the man I would end up loving with all my heart and soul… That while I wandered past you without a second glance, a day would someday come where I would look into your eyes and see someone who was intricately made to understand me better than anyone else… That as I searched for love and happiness in boys that couldn’t see me for me, my search for love and happiness would begin and end with you, the boy I would never truly see until years later…

The first time I saw you again, I was looking at my future. I didn’t know it then, but that boy that smiled at me with love and kindness like nothing I’d ever known was going to be my husband. He was going to treat me like a treasure, he was going to teach me to love myself, he was going to show me what love and kindness really were. He was going to be my spiritual leader, he was going to point me toward Christ. His arms would be the ones that made me feel safe. He would be the person I’d find my home in. He’d be the man I’d start a family with.

Who would have believed that you and I would have ended up together? Who would have seen the perfect way we fit together, like we were created together so that we could eventually become one? That while we lived separately for so many years, my world had still always been yours… That your laughter and smiles would augment my own… That your brain was engineered to understand my thoughts like they were your own… That we would be so much better together than apart…

The first time I saw you again, I think a part of me knew. That you and I would end up together… That it was the start of something greater than I could have ever imagined… It was the first day of a new life: my life with you.
